Subject: kfence: zero guard page after out-of-bounds access

After an out-of-bounds accesses, zero the guard page before re-protecting
in kfence_guarded_free().  On one hand this helps make the failure mode of
subsequent out-of-bounds accesses more deterministic, but could also
prevent certain information leaks.
