[RFC/PATCH RESEND -next 02/21] init: main: initialize kasan's shadow area on boot

From: Andrey Ryabinin
Date: Wed Jul 09 2014 - 07:45:38 EST

This patch initializes shadow area after it was allocated by arch code.
All low memory marked as accessible except shadow area itself.
Later free_all_bootmem() will release pages to buddy allocator
and these pages will be marked as unaccessible, untill somebody
will allocate them.
