This means that VMAP_STACK can be only enabled if KASAN_HW_TAGS=y or
if KASAN_VMALLOC=y for other modes.

SW_TAGS doesn't yet have vmalloc support, so it's not compatible with
VMAP_STACK. Once vmalloc support is added to SW_TAGS, KASAN_VMALLOC
should be allowed to be enabled with SW_TAGS. This series is a step
towards having that support, but doesn't implement it. That will be a
separate effort.
