[PATCH v2 06/23] kcsan, kbuild: Add option for barrier instrumentation only

From: Marco Elver
Date: Thu Nov 18 2021 - 03:11:37 EST

Source files that disable KCSAN via KCSAN_SANITIZE := n, remove all
instrumentation, including explicit barrier instrumentation. With
instrumentation for memory barriers, in few places it is required to
enable just the explicit instrumentation for memory barriers to avoid
false positives.

Providing the Makefile variable KCSAN_INSTRUMENT_BARRIERS_obj.o or
KCSAN_INSTRUMENT_BARRIERS (for all files) set to 'y' only enables the
explicit barrier instrumentation.
