The shadow is allocated dynamically though, isn't it?

That doesn't sound particularly realistic to me. The reason I'm pushing here
is because I would _really_ like to move to VMAP stack unconditionally, and
that would effectively force KASAN_VMALLOC to be set if KASAN is in use.

So unless there's a really good reason not to do that, please can we make
this unconditional for arm64? Pretty please?
