Subject[PATCH -next 1/2] mm: disable KCSAN for kmemleak
Kmemleak could scan task stacks while plain writes happens to those
stack variables which could results in data races. For example, in
sys_rt_sigaction and do_sigaction(), it could have plain writes in
a 32-byte size. Since the kmemleak does not care about the actual values
of a non-pointer and all do_sigaction() call sites only copy to stack
variables, just disable KCSAN for kmemleak to avoid annotating anything
outside Kmemleak just because Kmemleak scans everything.
