Series kasan: support stack instrumentation for tag-based mode | expand

Commit Message

This patch prepares Software Tag-Based KASAN for stack tagging support.

With Tag-Based KASAN when kernel stacks are allocated via pagealloc
(which happens when CONFIG_VMAP_STACK is not enabled), they get tagged.
KASAN instrumentation doesn't expect the sp register to be tagged, and
this leads to false-positive reports.

Fix by resetting the tag of kernel stack pointers after allocation.
