I'm not seeing how this patch would help. If you're running on the irq
stack, the *entire* irq stack would be unpoisoned. So there's still no
KASAN protection. Or am I missing something?
Seems like it would be more useful for KASAN to detect redzone accesses
on the irq stack (if it's not doing that already).
