Subject: arm: print alloc free paths for address in registers

In case of a use after free kernel oops, the freeing path of the object is
required to debug futher.  In most of cases the object address is present
in one of the registers.

Thus check the register's address and if it belongs to slab, print its
alloc and free path.

e.g.  in the below issue register r6 belongs to slab, and a use after free
issue occurred on one of its dereferenced values:
