The usecase is CONFIG_PAGE_OWNER without page_owner=on.
Without this patch, stackdepot will consume the memory
for the hashtable. By default, it's 8M which is never trivial.

With this option, in CONFIG_PAGE_OWNER configured system,
page_owner=off, stack_depot_disable in kernel command line,
we could save the wasted memory for the hashtable.

Please also update kernel-parameters.txt.

Why do we need vmalloc?

Otherwise, looks good to me.
Thank you!
