[PATCH v5 0/2] kasan: solve redzone overwritten issue at debug

From: yee.lee
Date: Sun Jul 04 2021 - 22:41:23 EST

From: Yee Lee <yee.lee@xxxxxxxxxxxx>

Issue: In SLUB debug, hwtag kasan_unpoison() would overwrite the redzone
in those objects with unaligned size.

The first patch Introduces slub_debug_enable_unlikely() to check
the state of debug mode.

The second patch Adds memzero_explict() to separate the initialization for
such condition. The new code path is executed about 1.1% during nromal
booting process. The penalty is acceptable since it only works in debug

Exp: QEMUv5.2(+mte)/SLUB_debug mode
code path exec : 941/80854 (1.1%)

Changed since v5:
- Fix format

Changed since v4:
- Introduce slub_debug_enable_unlikly() to check the debug state.
- Include "slab.h" and Add slub_debug_enable_unlikly() to lead
the condition statement.
- Add comment block about this new code path in source code.

Changed since v3:
- Apply IS_ENABLED to wrap codes under SLUB debug mode.
- Replace memset() by memzero_explict().
