I think you need to piggy-back on irq stack support in kasan. See
filter_irq_stacks in mm/kasan/kasan.c. If you put __irq_svc (and
potentially other irq entry points) into irq/softirq section, then
they will be filtered automatically.
Also note that at least on x86 stack unwinder unwinds whole irq stack
and then whole kernel thread stack, so generally we need to filter not
just the last entry, but everything below irq entry point.

And I think this whole change need to be moved into kasan's save_stack
function. There is already a similar workarounds for x86. Currently
stackdepot merely memorizes the input data, regardless of what it is
(theoretically, not necessary even a stack trace).
