Fascinating, I'll dig into that more.

Attached, it's based on the one provided with the SDK for the T4240RDB.

I use the vmemmap area as the shadow region for kasan, in a way that
takes absolutely no account of any other use. It's very possible that I
could instead do something similar to what arm64 used to do - I think
one of the previous ppc64 approaches did something similar too.
