Good point.

There's also compat_save_altstack_ex() -- which presumably needs the
same fix? -- and __compat_save_altstack().

But it has two call sites: the 32-bit and 64-bit versions of
save_altstack_ex().

I wonder if this might open up more theoretical SMAP holes for other
callers to memset().

What about just adding a couple of WRITE_ONCE's to sas_ss_reset()? That
would probably be the least disruptive option.

Or even better, it would be great if we could get Clang to change their
memset() insertion heuristics, so that KASAN acts more like non-KASAN
code in that regard.
