Subject[PATCH v11 08/19] mm: slub: introduce metadata_access_enable()/metadata_access_disable()
Date
It's ok for slub to access memory that marked by kasan as inaccessible
(object's metadata). Kasan shouldn't print report in that case because
these accesses are valid. Disabling instrumentation of slub.c code is
not enough to achieve this because slub passes pointer to object's
metadata into external functions like memchr_inv().

We don't want to disable instrumentation for memchr_inv() because
this is quite generic function, and we don't want to miss bugs.

metadata_access_enable/metadata_access_disable used to tell
KASan where accesses to metadata starts/end, so we
could temporarily disable KASan reports.
