I don't think I understand the question, but let me try to explain my
thinking and see if that resonates with you. We know that the KASAN
tests will require more than one report, and we want that. For most
users, since a KASAN error can cause unexpected kernel behavior for
anything after a KASAN error, it is best for just one unexpected KASAN
error to be the only error printed to the user, unless they specify
kasan-multi-shot. The way I understand it, the way to implement this
is to use "bool multishot = kasan_save_enable_multi_shot();" and
"kasan_restore_multi_shot(multishot);" around the KASAN tests so that
kasan-multi-shot is temporarily enabled for the tests we expect
multiple reports. I assume "kasan_restore_multi_shot(multishot);"
restores the value to what the user input was so after the KASAN tests
are finished, if the user did not specify kasan-multi-shot and an
unexpected kasan error is reported, it will print the full report and
only that first one. Is this understanding correct? If you have a
better way of implementing this or a better expected behavior, I
appreciate your thoughts.
