Subject: [PATCH] [v2] kasan: remove clang version check for KASAN_STACK
Date: Fri, 19 Jul 2019 22:03:31 +0200
Message-ID: <20190719200347.2596375-1-arnd@arndb.de> (raw)

asan-stack mode still uses dangerously large kernel stacks of
tens of kilobytes in some drivers, and it does not seem that anyone
is working on the clang bug.

Turn it off for all clang versions to prevent users from
accidentally enabling it once they update to clang-9, and
to help automated build testing with clang-9.

Link: https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=38809
Fixes: 6baec880d7a5 ("kasan: turn off asan-stack for clang-8 and earlier")
Signed-off-by: Arnd Bergmann <arnd@arndb.de>

v2: disable the feature for all clang versions, not just 9 and below.
