I wanted to test this for deciding if we can show sensitive info in
KFENCE reports, which works just fine now that debug_never_hash_pointers
is non-static. FWIW,

Acked-by: Marco Elver <elver@google.com>

But unfortunately this series broke some other test:

| In file included from lib/test_bitmap.c:17:
| lib/test_bitmap.c: In function ‘test_bitmap_init’:
| lib/../tools/testing/selftests/kselftest_module.h:45:48: error: ‘skipped_tests’ undeclared (first use in this function); did you mean ‘failed_tests’?
| 45 | return kstm_report(total_tests, failed_tests, skipped_tests); \
| | ^~~~~~~~~~~~~
| lib/test_bitmap.c:637:1: note: in expansion of macro ‘KSTM_MODULE_LOADERS’
| 637 | KSTM_MODULE_LOADERS(test_bitmap);
| | ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
| lib/../tools/testing/selftests/kselftest_module.h:45:48: note: each undeclared identifier is reported only once for each function it appears in
| 45 | return kstm_report(total_tests, failed_tests, skipped_tests); \
| | ^~~~~~~~~~~~~
| lib/test_bitmap.c:637:1: note: in expansion of macro ‘KSTM_MODULE_LOADERS’
| 637 | KSTM_MODULE_LOADERS(test_bitmap);
| | ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
| lib/../tools/testing/selftests/kselftest_module.h:46:1: error: control reaches end of non-void function [-Werror=return-type]
| 46 | } \
| | ^
| lib/test_bitmap.c:637:1: note: in expansion of macro ‘KSTM_MODULE_LOADERS’
| 637 | KSTM_MODULE_LOADERS(test_bitmap);
| | ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

My allyesconfig build suggests test_bitmap.c is the only one, so it
should probably be fixed up in this series.

Thanks,
