Thanks for the report. This is actually due to changing
kfree_hook(object) to kfree_hook(page_address(page)). The test forces
slub to go to the page allocator and then freeing with the next byte
address instead of the returned address. Since both are addresses on
the same page, the code is fine but the kasan test is not happy.

The test is making sure that programmers use the address returned by
kmalloc in the kfree. I don't think this is urgent but I will send the
patch to fix this during the week.

thanks,
Shakeel
