Thanks for identifying the VDPAU/VAAPI leak!

I think I found a couple of solutions to this problem.
Solution #1: MALLOC_ARENA_MAX=1 (or =2) in kodi.conf. This setting does not allow kodi.bin process to use (and never free) ungodly amounts of RAM over time.
Solution #2: Jemalloc. I built an image with Jemalloc 5.2.0 using this as a reference. The result is similar to decreasing MALLOC_ARENA_MAX.

I asked on the LibreELEC Slack if anyone had any thoughts on this suggestion, and it's been suggested that Python2 has heap fragmentation issues in which case moving to Python3 (which is scheduled to happen during Kodi 19 development) may help reduce fragmentation.

Personally, I'm not keen on using a different allocator - Jemalloc has been tested in the past without any noticeable improvement (otherwise we'd be using Jemalloc already). You should be able to manually set MALLOC_ARENA_MAX=# in /storage/.config/kodi.conf.

Since this is a development issue it would be best to continue any discussion in the LibreELEC forum.

Turns out it did get backported to Python2 eventually: https://bugs.python.org/issue20494

IMO it's worth the time invested into adding it. 

Sorry for this question, I'm a Linux noob. Can I add this myself to my LibreElec install?

You'll need to build LibreELEC from source.

https://wiki.libreelec.tv/compile

Not to mention work out how to integrate those Pulse Audio BT modules into the build.

(2019-06-07, 08:39)DerSchnelle Wrote: I checked the UUID and the vfat-partition shown after blkid is indeed wrong (3E92-8632).

So I will have to edit the syslinux.cfg. Sadly I couldn't figure out how to do that. Is it possible to do it within the debugging-shell?

Thank you very much for your help!

Yes, but it's probably easier to boot into LibreELEC and edit it there as you have more tools available.

Assuming /dev/sda is your boot disk (check the output of blkid) then in the debug shell execute:

mount /dev/sda1 /flash
exit
and your system should now proceed to boot into LibreELEC.

If your Storage partition also fails to mount, again because of a changed UUID, then use:

mount /dev/sda2 /storage
exit

Once LibreELEC has booted, login with ssh (username: root, default password: libreelec) and run the following:

mount -o remount,rw /flash
nano /flash/syslinux.cfg
Make the change(s) to fix the UUID, then enter ctrl-x (followed by Y and ENTER) to save the file.

Reboot, and you should hopefully boot straight into LibreELEC.         
First I want to thank you very much for your help! Sadly I wasn't able to boot into LibreELEC, because the storage partition wasn't to be found. I ended up doing a fresh installation what worked fine so far.

The only problem I have now is, that in my audio-configuration I can't choose my output device. There is only one entry (greyed out) with Bluetooth Audio (PULSEAUDIO). I uploaded the logfile to: http://ix.io/1mmf

There are lot INFOs like:

@DerSchnelle can you upload your Kodi log again, you seem to have typed the wrong url. Please enable debug logging, reboot, then upload the Kodi log using the LE Settings addon.

@DerSchnelle the current kernel (5.1.12) isn't detecting any soundcards, can you determine when this started by testing older builds/kernels? There's also a kernel warning when configuring the GPU clocks - not really sure if this is related.
