Subject[PATCH -tip v3 03/11] kcsan: Support distinguishing volatile accesses
From
In the kernel, volatile is used in various concurrent context, whether
in low-level synchronization primitives or for legacy reasons. If
supported by the compiler, we will assume that aligned volatile accesses
up to sizeof(long long) (matching compiletime_assert_rwonce_type()) are
atomic.

Recent versions Clang [1] (GCC tentative [2]) can instrument volatile
accesses differently. Add the option (required) to enable the
instrumentation, and provide the necessary runtime functions. None of
the updated compilers are widely available yet (Clang 11 will be the
first release to support the feature).

[1] https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/commit/5a2c31116f412c3b6888be361137efd705e05814
[2] https://gcc.gnu.org/pipermail/gcc-patches/2020-April/544452.html

This patch allows removing any explicit checks in primitives such as
READ_ONCE() and WRITE_ONCE().
