Subject[PATCH v3 1/2] kfence: move the size check to the beginning of __kfence_alloc()
From
Check the allocation size before toggling kfence_allocation_gate.
This way allocations that can't be served by KFENCE will not result in
waiting for another CONFIG_KFENCE_SAMPLE_INTERVAL without allocating
anything.
