For slab objects we memorize both alloc and free stacks. You'll never know in advance what information will be usefull

Exactly, thanks.

Given that we already have the page_owner responsible for providing alloc/free stacks for pages, all that we should in KASAN do is to
enable the feature by default. Free stack saving should be decoupled from debug_pagealloc into separate option so that it can be enabled
by KASAN and/or debug_pagealloc.

Right. Walter, can you do it that way, or should I?
