Subject: [PATCH] [v4] kasan: rework Kconfig settings

We get a lot of very large stack frames using gcc-7.0.1 with the default
-fsanitize-address-use-after-scope --param asan-stack=1 options, which
can easily cause an overflow of the kernel stack, e.g.

drivers/gpu/drm/i915/gvt/handlers.c:2434:1: warning: the frame size of 46176 bytes is larger than 3072 bytes
drivers/net/wireless/ralink/rt2x00/rt2800lib.c:5650:1: warning: the frame size of 23632 bytes is larger than 3072 bytes
lib/atomic64_test.c:250:1: warning: the frame size of 11200 bytes is larger than 3072 bytes
drivers/gpu/drm/i915/gvt/handlers.c:2621:1: warning: the frame size of 9208 bytes is larger than 3072 bytes
drivers/media/dvb-frontends/stv090x.c:3431:1: warning: the frame size of 6816 bytes is larger than 3072 bytes
fs/fscache/stats.c:287:1: warning: the frame size of 6536 bytes is larger than 3072 bytes

To reduce this risk, -fsanitize-address-use-after-scope is now split
out into a separate CONFIG_KASAN_EXTRA Kconfig option, leading to stack
frames that are smaller than 2 kilobytes most of the time on x86_64. An
earlier version of this patch also prevented combining KASAN_EXTRA with
KASAN_INLINE, but that is no longer necessary with gcc-7.0.1.

All patches to get the frame size below 2048 bytes with CONFIG_KASAN=y and
CONFIG_KASAN_EXTRA=n have been merged by maintainers now, so we can bring
back that default now. KASAN_EXTRA=y still causes lots of warnings but now
defaults to !COMPILE_TEST to disable it in allmodconfig, and it remains
disabled in all other defconfigs since it is a new option.  I arbitrarily
raise the warning limit for KASAN_EXTRA to 3072 to reduce the noise,
but an allmodconfig kernel still has around 50 warnings on gcc-7.

I experimented a bit more with smaller stack frames and have another
follow-up series that reduces the warning limit for 64-bit architectures
to 1280 bytes (without CONFIG_KASAN).

With earlier versions of this patch series, I also had patches to
address the warnings we get with KASAN and/or KASAN_EXTRA, using a
"noinline_if_stackbloat" annotation. That annotation now got replaced with
a gcc-8 bugfix (see https://gcc.gnu.org/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=81715)
and a workaround for older compilers, which means that KASAN_EXTRA is
now just as bad as before and will lead to an instant stack overflow in
a few extreme cases.

This reverts parts of commit commit 3f181b4 ("lib/Kconfig.debug: disable
-Wframe-larger-than warnings with KASAN=y").
Two patches in linux-next should be merged first to avoid introducing
warnings in an allmodconfig build:
3cd890dbe2a4 ("media: dvb-frontends: fix i2c access helpers for KASAN")
16c3ada89cff ("media: r820t: fix r820t_write_reg for KASAN")
