[PATCH 0/7] kasan: various fixes

From: Andrey Konovalov
Date: Thu Sep 03 2015 - 10:49:55 EST

This patchset contains various fixes for KASAN. That includes:

1. Improving reported bug types.

Making KASAN distinguish and report the following types of bugs:
slab-out-of-bounds, stack-out-of-bounds, global-out-of-bounds
use-after-free, null-ptr-deref, user-memory-access, wild-memory-access.

2. Making references to the tool name consistent.

We decided to use KASAN as the short name of the tool since a lot of
people already use it, and KernelAddressSanitizer as the full name
to be consistent with the userspace AddressSantizer.

Andrey Konovalov (7):
kasan: update reported bug types for not user nor kernel memory
kasan: update reported bug types for kernel memory accesses
kasan: accurately determine the type of the bad access
kasan: update log messages
kasan: various fixes in documentation
kasan: move KASAN_SANITIZE in arch/x86/boot/Makefile
