Subject: kasan: record task_work_add() call stack

Why record task_work_add() call stack?  Syzbot reports many use-after-free
issues for task_work, see [1].  After seeing the free stack and the
current auxiliary stack, we think they are useless, we don't know where
the work was registered.  This work may be the free call stack, so we miss
the root cause and don't solve the use-after-free.

Add the task_work_add() call stack into the KASAN auxiliary stack in order
to improve KASAN reports.  It helps programmers solve use-after-free
issues.
