Subject: [PATCH -tip v3 06/11] kcsan: Restrict supported compilers

The first version of Clang that supports -tsan-distinguish-volatile will
be able to support KCSAN. The first Clang release to do so, will be
Clang 11. This is due to satisfying all the following requirements:

1. Never emit calls to __tsan_func_{entry,exit}.

2. __no_kcsan functions should not call anything, not even
   kcsan_{enable,disable}_current(), when using __{READ,WRITE}_ONCE => Requires
   leaving them plain!

3. Support atomic_{read,set}*() with KCSAN, which rely on
   arch_atomic_{read,set}*() using __{READ,WRITE}_ONCE() => Because of
   #2, rely on Clang 11's -tsan-distinguish-volatile support. We will
   double-instrument atomic_{read,set}*(), but that's reasonable given
   it's still lower cost than the data_race() variant due to avoiding 2
   extra calls (kcsan_{en,dis}able_current() calls).

4. __always_inline functions inlined into __no_kcsan functions are never
   instrumented.

5. __always_inline functions inlined into instrumented functions are
   instrumented.

6. __no_kcsan_or_inline functions may be inlined into __no_kcsan functions =>
   Implies leaving 'noinline' off of __no_kcsan_or_inline.

7. Because of #6, __no_kcsan and __no_kcsan_or_inline functions should never be
   spuriously inlined into instrumented functions, causing the accesses of the
   __no_kcsan function to be instrumented.

Older versions of Clang do not satisfy #3. The latest GCC currently doesn't
support at least #1, #3, and #7.
