Yes, it's really needed, because some code relies on this (e.g. clear_pgs() and kasan_init()).
But it should be possible to get rid of this requirement.

At first we need to rework clear_pgs().
The purpose of clear_pgs() is to remove kasan shadow from swapper_pg_dir.
So clear_pgs() should clear the top most kasan_zero_* entries from page tables.
Previously it was enough to clear PGDs, in case of 16K_PAGES + 48BIT_VA we probably need to clear PMDs


We also have to change following part of kasan_init()
...
/*
* We are going to perform proper setup of shadow memory.
* At first we should unmap early shadow (clear_pgds() call bellow).
* However, instrumented code couldn't execute without shadow memory.
* tmp_pg_dir used to keep early shadow mapped until full shadow
* setup will be finished.
*/
memcpy(tmp_pg_dir, swapper_pg_dir, sizeof(tmp_pg_dir));


Besides tmp_pg_dir we will need one more temporary page table to store those entries
which later will be removed from swapper_pg_dir by clear_pgds().
