I think this would defeat the purpose of this UBSAN feature. Certain
UBSAN checks are done fully statically, like is done by
fsanitize=unreachable, and could actually be enabled in production
kernels; trapping the kernel in these cases would be a reasonable way
to avoid further damage to the system.

(You could in theory force it to not emit a trap by using
fno-sanitize-trap=unreachable, but I think it's a bad idea.)

I'd vote for this. And it seems Ilie implemented this already.
