kasan: Fix a type conversion error

The current KASAN code can not find the following out-of-bounds bugs:

        char *ptr;
        ptr = kmalloc(8, GFP_KERNEL);
        memset(ptr+7, 0, 2);

the cause of the problem is the type conversion error in
*memory_is_poisoned_n* function.  So this patch fix that.
