Oh, I see. Question though is what to pass as the extra argument:
Do I need to pass in the caller's effective rights, or should I take
kasan_page_table()'s checking against kasan_zero_p?d as an
indication that the effective permission is zero here? I'm sorry for
this probably trivial question, but I know nothing about how KASAN
works.
