Subject: mm/slub: clarify verification reporting

Patch series "Actually fix freelist pointer vs redzoning", v4.

This fixes redzoning vs the freelist pointer (both for middle-position and
very small caches).  Both are "theoretical" fixes, in that I see no
evidence of such small-sized caches actually be used in the kernel, but
that's no reason to let the bugs continue to exist, especially since
people doing local development keep tripping over it.  :)


This patch (of 3):

Instead of repeating "Redzone" and "Poison", clarify which sides of those
zones got tripped.  Additionally fix column alignment in the trailer.

Before:

BUG test (Tainted: G    B            ): Redzone overwritten
...
Redzone (____ptrval____): bb bb bb bb bb bb bb bb      ........
Object (____ptrval____): f6 f4 a5 40 1d e8            ...@..
Redzone (____ptrval____): 1a aa                        ..
Padding (____ptrval____): 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00      ........

After:

BUG test (Tainted: G    B            ): Right Redzone overwritten
...
Redzone  (____ptrval____): bb bb bb bb bb bb bb bb      ........
Object   (____ptrval____): f6 f4 a5 40 1d e8            ...@..
Redzone  (____ptrval____): 1a aa                        ..
Padding  (____ptrval____): 00 00 00 00 00 00 00 00      ........

The earlier commits that slowly resulted in the "Before" reporting were:

  d86bd1bece6f ("mm/slub: support left redzone")
  ffc79d288000 ("slub: use print_hex_dump")
  2492268472e7 ("SLUB: change error reporting format to follow lockdep loosely")
