One thing is that during early boot kasan_report is called multiple
times, but these are false positives related to the fact that we don't
have a proper shadow yet (setup later). So during early boot we set
kasan_disable=1 (or some global or per-task flag), and then
kasan_report checks it and returns.
Once we setup proper shadow, the flag is reset and from now on
kasan_report actually reports bug.
