Series kasan, vmalloc, arm64: add vmalloc tagging support for SW/HW_TAGS | expand

From: Andrey Konovalov <andreyknvl@google.com>

Once tag-based KASAN modes start tagging vmalloc() allocations,
kernel stacks start getting tagged if CONFIG_VMAP_STACK is enabled.

Reset the tag of kernel stack pointers after allocation in

For SW_TAGS KASAN, when CONFIG_KASAN_STACK is enabled, the
instrumentation can't handle the SP register being tagged.

For HW_TAGS KASAN, there's no instrumentation-related issues. However,
the impact of having a tagged SP register needs to be properly evaluated,
so keep it non-tagged for now.

Note, that the memory for the stack allocation still gets tagged to
catch vmalloc-into-stack out-of-bounds accesses.
