OK, sounds good.

If it's possible to put an explicit check for tag faults at the end of
each test, then adding async support shouldn't be hard.

Note, that some of the tests trigger bugs that are detected via
explicit checks within KASAN. For example, KASAN checks that a pointer
that's being freed points to a start of a slab object, or that the
object is accessible when it gets freed, etc. I don't see this being a
problem, so just FYI.

Thanks!
