I'm not entirely sure, how debug objects are really useful in vmalloc framework.
I'm assuming they are useful in some ways. So, there are 2 issues in that. First patch is avoiding possible race scenario and second patch passes _proper_ args in debug object APIs. Both these patches can help debug objects to be in consistent state. We've observed some list corruptions in debug objects. However, no claims that these patches will be fixing them. If one has an opinion that debug object has no use in vmalloc framework, I would raise a patch to remove them from the vunmap leg.
