Hi,

The QUARANTINE_BATCHES thing was supposed to fix this problem, see
quarantine_remove_cache() function.
What is the amount of RAM and number of CPUs in your system?
If system has 4GB of RAM, quarantine size is 128MB and that's split
into 1024 batches. Batch size is 128KB. Even if that's filled with the
smallest objects of size 32, that's only 4K objects. And there is a
cond_resched() between processing of every batch.
I don't understand why it causes problems in your setup. We use KASAN
extremely heavily on hundreds of machines 24x7 and we have not seen
any single report from this code...
