in this case I agree. will change, since it's not in critical path and we
can waste few cycles zeroing memory.

hmm, I would argue that kmalloc_array is a preferred way, but kcalloc ?
Few lines below the whole array is inited with INIT_HLIST_HEAD...

it leaks, how? slabinfo is only available to root.
The same code exists in conntrack:
