 This allows ``VMAP_STACK`` support on x86, and can simplify support of
 architectures that do not have a fixed module region.

+CONFIG_KASAN_RCU_STACK_RECORD
+~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
+
+With CONFIG_KASAN_RCU_STACK_RECORD, when call_rcu() is called, it will
+store the call_rcu() call stack into slub alloc meta-data. The goal
+is to print call_rcu() information in KASAN report. It is helpful for
+use-after-free or double free memory issue.
+
+Record first and last call_rcu() call stack and print two call_rcu()
+call stack in KASAN report.
+
+This option doesn't increase the cost of memory consumption, we add two
+call_rcu() call stack into struct kasan_alloc_meta and size is 8 bytes.
+Remove the free track from struct kasan_alloc_meta and size is 8 bytes.
+So we don't enlarge the slub meta-data size.
+
+This option is only suitable for generic KASAN. Because the free track
+is stored in freed object. so free track is valid information only when
+it exists in the quarantine. If the slub object is in-use state, then
+KASAN report doesn't print call_rcu() free track information.
