Noticed that CONFIG_KCSAN_VERBOSE=y warning still appears, because it
wants CONFIG_PROVE_LOCKING=y.

Sounds good, with another suggestion below, but otherwise

For completeness, could add this above:

	echo "Compiler or architecture does not support KCSAN!"

Because we might also be on an unsupported architecture.
