Subject: kasan, mm: fail krealloc on freed objects

Currently, if krealloc() is called on a freed object with KASAN enabled,
it allocates and returns a new object, but doesn't copy any memory from
the old one as ksize() returns 0.  This makes the caller believe that
krealloc() succeeded (KASAN report is printed though).

This patch adds an accessibility check into __do_krealloc().  If the check
fails, krealloc() returns NULL.  This check duplicates the one in ksize();
this is fixed in the following patch.

This patch also adds a KASAN-KUnit test to check krealloc() behaviour when
it's called on a freed object.
