Just make this CONFIG_KASAN_VMALLOC, since that depends on KASAN_GENERIC.

I don't understand the relation with SW_TAGS. The VMAP_STACK dependency is:

depends on !KASAN || KASAN_HW_TAGS || KASAN_VMALLOC

which doesn't mention SW_TAGS at all. So that seems to imply that SW_TAGS
and VMAP_STACK are mutually exclusive :(
