kmemleak: Simplify the reports logged by the scanning thread
Because of false positives, the memory scanning thread may print too much information. This patch changes the scanning thread to only print the number of newly suspected leaks. Further information can be read from the /sys/kernel/debug/kmemleak file. Signed-off-by: Catalin Marinas <catalin.marinas@arm.com>
