kasan: add functions to clear stack poison



Functions which the compiler has instrumented for ASAN place poison on
the stack shadow upon entry and remove this poison prior to returning.

In some cases (e.g. hotplug and idle), CPUs may exit the kernel a
number of levels deep in C code.  If there are any instrumented
functions on this critical path, these will leave portions of the idle
thread stack shadow poisoned.

If a CPU returns to the kernel via a different path (e.g. a cold
entry), then depending on stack frame layout subsequent calls to
instrumented functions may use regions of the stack with stale poison,
resulting in (spurious) KASAN splats to the console.

Contemporary GCCs always add stack shadow poisoning when ASAN is
enabled, even when asked to not instrument a function [1], so we can't
simply annotate functions on the critical path to avoid poisoning.

Instead, this series explicitly removes any stale poison before it can
be hit.  In the common hotplug case we clear the entire stack shadow in
common code, before a CPU is brought online.

On architectures which perform a cold return as part of cpu idle may
retain an architecture-specific amount of stack contents.  To retain the
poison for this retained context, the arch code must call the core KASAN
code, passing a "watermark" stack pointer value beyond which shadow will
be cleared.  Architectures which don't perform a cold return as part of
idle do not need any additional code.

This patch (of 3):

Functions which the compiler has instrumented for KASAN place poison on
the stack shadow upon entry and remove this poision prior to returning.

In some cases (e.g.  hotplug and idle), CPUs may exit the kernel a number
of levels deep in C code.  If there are any instrumented functions on this
critical path, these will leave portions of the stack shadow poisoned.

If a CPU returns to the kernel via a different path (e.g.  a cold entry),
then depending on stack frame layout subsequent calls to instrumented
functions may use regions of the stack with stale poison, resulting in
(spurious) KASAN splats to the console.

To avoid this, we must clear stale poison from the stack prior to
instrumented functions being called.  This patch adds functions to the
KASAN core for removing poison from (portions of) a task's stack.  These
will be used by subsequent patches to avoid problems with hotplug and
idle.
