Allow architectures to define a kasan_arch_is_ready() hook that bails
out of any function that's about to touch the shadow unless the arch
says that it is ready for the memory to be accessed. This is fairly
uninvasive and should have a negligible performance penalty.

This will only work in outline mode, so an arch must specify
ARCH_DISABLE_KASAN_INLINE if it requires this.

I discuss the justfication for this later in the series. Also,
both previous RFCs for ppc64 - by 2 different people - have
needed this trick! See:
 - https://lore.kernel.org/patchwork/patch/592820/ # ppc64 hash series
 - https://patchwork.ozlabs.org/patch/795211/      # ppc radix series

but also check if an assertion that this is only used with
KASAN_GENERIC might make sense (below). Depends on how much we want to
make sure kasan_arch_is_ready() could be useful for other modes (which
I don't think it makes sense).

I've been trying to think of a way to make it clear this is only for
KASAN_GENERIC mode, and not the others. An arch can always define this
function, but of course it might not be used. One way would be to add
an '#ifndef CONFIG_KASAN_GENERIC' in the #else case and #error if it's
not generic mode.

I think trying to make this do anything useful for SW_TAGS or HW_TAGS
modes does not make sense (at least right now).
