That's true, we will have refactoring for it.

kasan_record_aux_stack() will be re-used for call_rcu, timer, and
workqueue.

This is a good suggestion, next patch will do it.

Work is good.

We hope that next patch keep it as it is aux_stack[2], it may record
call_rcu, timer, or workqueue. Because struct kasan_alloc_meta is 16
bytes, it will have the minimal redzone size and good alignment, lets
get better memory consumption.


Thanks for your good suggestion.
