commit 0600597c854e53d2f9b7a6a718c1da2b8b4cb4db upstream.

When building with -Wuninitialized and CONFIG_KASAN_SW_TAGS unset, Clang

mm/kasan/common.c:484:40: warning: variable 'tag' is uninitialized when
used here [-Wuninitialized]
kasan_unpoison_shadow(set_tag(object, tag), size);

set_tag ignores tag in this configuration but clang doesn't realize it at
this point in its pipeline, as it points to arch_kasan_set_tag as being
the point where it is used, which will later be expanded to (void
*)(object) without a use of tag. Initialize tag to 0xff, as it removes
this warning and doesn't change the meaning of the code.
