I am not confident we can fix this in clang.
The difference between gcc and clang, AFAICT, is not in the asan
instrumentation, but in inining.
Looking at the reproducer from https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38809#c4,
if I change ltv350qv_write_reg to always inline, gcc also produces a
huge 10K stack frame,
and making it noinline fixes the stack frame for both gcc and clang.
