Scratch that :(

I tried this out under EFI and it dies horribly in the stub code because
we're missing at least one KASAN_SANITIZE_ Makefile entry.

So I think this needs longer to stew before hitting mainline. By all means
get the x86 dependencies in for 4.3, but the arm64 port can probably use
another cycle to iron out the bugs.
