kmemleak: Do not force the slab debugging Kconfig options



Selecting DEBUG_SLAB or SLUB_DEBUG by the KMEMLEAK menu entry may cause
issues with other dependencies (KMEMCHECK). These configuration options
aren't strictly needed by kmemleak but they may increase the chances of
finding leaks. This patch also updates the KMEMLEAK config entry help
text.

Enabling DEBUG_SLAB or SLUB_DEBUG may increase the chances
of finding leaks due to the slab objects poisoning.
In order to access the kmemleak file, debugfs needs to be
mounted (usually at /sys/kernel/debug).
