We need to start poisoning at addr+size exactly.
Asan shadow scheme supports this. It's not possible to poison
beginning of an aligned 8-byte block, but leave tail unpoisoned. But
it is possible to poison tail of an aligned 8-byte block and leave
beginning unpoisoned. Look at what we do for kmalloc.
