kmemleak: add config to select auto scan

Kmemleak scan can be cpu intensive and can stall user tasks at times.  To
prevent this, add config DEBUG_KMEMLEAK_AUTO_SCAN to enable/disable auto
scan on boot up.  Also protect first_run with DEBUG_KMEMLEAK_AUTO_SCAN as
this is meant for only first automatic scan.

Depending on the cpu, kmemleak scan may be cpu intensive and can
stall user tasks at times. This option enables/disables automatic
kmemleak scan at boot up.
Say N here to disable kmemleak auto scan thread to stop automatic
scanning. Disabling this option disables automatic reporting of
memory leaks.
If unsure, say Y.
