Nope, at least memchr_inv() call in slab_pad_check will be a problem.

I think putting disable/enable only where we strictly need them might be a problem for future maintenance of slub.
If someone is going to add a new function call somewhere, he must ensure that it this call won't be a problem
for kasan.
