These test scripts have not changed at all recently, but topics in seen
have caused these to trigger the linux-leaks test.  It has been reported
on list, so let's fix the claim that these are leak free and when
someone investigates and fixes the problem, they can turn it back on.

    leak tests: ignore some new leaks in a few tests
    
    linux-leaks passes when 'seen' is merged with this topic. A better fix
    is probably to bisect to determine which topic caused the memory leak
    and plug the leak in that topic (because these test scripts did not have
    any changes since the version when they previously passed), but a couple
    of quotes:
    
    """ This is sort of water under the bridge, as the other topic is
    already in 'master', but come to think of it, the strategy we used with
    TEST_PASSES_SANITIZE_LEAK variable was misguided.
    ... I am tempted to drop the "TEST_PASSES" bit from this script for now,
    """ (from https://lore.kernel.org/git/xmqqee6dz5s9.fsf@gitster.g/)
    
    """ But as to the "roadblock" I don't mind the
    TEST_PASSES_SANITIZE_LEAK=true being removed from the script at the
    slightest sign of trouble. Nobody should have to shift gears and chase
    down some memory leak... """ (from
