Subject[PATCH mm] kfence: make reporting sensitive information configurable
From
We cannot rely on CONFIG_DEBUG_KERNEL to decide if we're running a
"debug kernel" where we can safely show potentially sensitive
information in the kernel log.

Therefore, add the option CONFIG_KFENCE_REPORT_SENSITIVE to decide if we
should add potentially sensitive information to KFENCE reports. The
default behaviour remains unchanged.
