[PATCH v5 2/2] kasan: Add memzero int for unaligned size at DEBUG

From: yee.lee
Date: Sun Jul 04 2021 - 22:41:21 EST

From: Yee Lee <yee.lee@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

Issue: when SLUB debug is on, hwtag kasan_unpoison() would overwrite
the redzone of object with unaligned size.

An additional memzero_explicit() path is added to replacing init by
hwtag instruction for those unaligned size at SLUB debug mode.

The penalty is acceptable since they are only enabled in debug mode,
not production builds. A block of comment is added for explanation.
