I get the following failure with KASAN + 16K_PAGES + 48BIT_VA, with 4.4-rc1:

arch/arm64/mm/kasan_init.c: In function ‘kasan_early_init’:

The problem is that the PGDIR_SIZE is (1UL << 47) with 16K+48bit, which makes
the KASAN_SHADOW_END unaligned(which is aligned to (1UL << (48 - 3)) ). Is the
alignment really needed ? Thoughts on how best we could fix this ?
