Subject: [PATCH 0/3] arm64: kasan: support CONFIG_KASAN_VMALLOC

Linux supports KAsan for VMALLOC since commit 3c5c3cfb9ef4da9
("kasan: support backing vmalloc space with real shadow memory")

Acroding to how x86 ported it [1], they early allocated p4d and pgd,
but in arm64 I just simulate how KAsan supports MODULES_VADDR in arm64
by not to populate the vmalloc area except for kimg address.

Test environment:
    4G and 8G Qemu virt, 
    39-bit VA + 4k PAGE_SIZE with 3-level page table,
    test by lib/test_kasan.ko and lib/test_kasan_module.ko

but not test for HW_TAG(I have no proper device), thus keep
HW_TAG and KASAN_VMALLOC mutual exclusion until confirming
the functionality.
