From: Mark Rutland <mark.rutland@arm.com>

In kcsan_setup_watchpoint() we store snapshots of a watched value into a
union of u8/u16/u32/u64 sized fields, modify this in place using a
consistent field, then later check for any changes via the u64 field.

We can achieve the safe effect more simply by always treating the field
as a u64, as smaller values will be zero-extended. As the values are
zero-extended, we don't need to truncate the access_mask when we apply
it, and can always apply the full 64-bit access_mask to the 64-bit
value.

Finally, we can store the two snapshots and calculated difference
separately, which makes the code a little easier to read, and will
permit reporting the old/new values in subsequent patches.

There should be no functional change as a result of this patch.
