Right now tag-based KASAN can retag the memory that is reallocated via
krealloc and return a differently tagged pointer even if the same slab
object gets used and no reallocated technically happens.

There are a few issues with this approach. One is that krealloc callers
can't rely on comparing the return value with the passed argument to
check whether reallocation happened. Another is that if a caller knows
that no reallocation happened, that it can access object memory through
the old pointer, which leads to false positives. Look at nf_ct_ext_add()
to see an example.

Fix this by keeping the same tag if the memory don't actually gets
reallocated during krealloc.

 /*
- * Since it's desirable to only call object contructors once during slab
- * allocation, we preassign tags to all such objects. Also preassign tags for
- * SLAB_TYPESAFE_BY_RCU slabs to avoid use-after-free reports.
- * For SLAB allocator we can't preassign tags randomly since the freelist is
- * stored as an array of indexes instead of a linked list. Assign tags based
- * on objects indexes, so that objects that are next to each other get
- * different tags.
- * After a tag is assigned, the object always gets allocated with the same tag.
- * The reason is that we can't change tags for objects with constructors on
- * reallocation (even for non-SLAB_TYPESAFE_BY_RCU), because the constructor
- * code can save the pointer to the object somewhere (e.g. in the object
- * itself). Then if we retag it, the old saved pointer will become invalid.
+ * This function assigns a tag to an object considering the following:
+ * 1. A cache might have a constructor, which might save a pointer to a slab
+ *    object somewhere (e.g. in the object itself). We preassign a tag for
+ *    each object in caches with constructors during slab creation and reuse
+ *    the same tag each time a particular object is allocated.
+ * 2. A cache might be SLAB_TYPESAFE_BY_RCU, which means objects can be
+ *    accessed after being freed. We preassign tags for objects in these
+ *    caches as well.
+ * 3. For SLAB allocator we can't preassign tags randomly since the freelist
+ *    is stored as an array of indexes instead of a linked list. Assign tags
+ *    based on objects indexes, so that objects that are next to each other
+ *    get different tags.
