+ bool "KASan: runtime memory debugger"
+ help
+ Enables kernel address sanitizer - runtime memory debugger,
+ designed to find out-of-bounds accesses and use-after-free bugs.
+ This is strictly debugging feature. It consumes about 1/8
+ of available memory and brings about ~x3 performance slowdown.
+ For better error detection enable CONFIG_STACKTRACE,
+ and add slub_debug=U to boot cmdline.

+config KASAN_OUTLINE
+ bool "Outline instrumentation"
+ help
+ Before every memory access compiler insert function call
+ __asan_load*/__asan_store*. These functions performs check
+ of shadow memory. This is slower than inline instrumentation,
+ however it doesn't bloat size of kernel's .text section so
+ much as inline does.
+
+config KASAN_INLINE
+ bool "Inline instrumentation"
+ help
+ Compiler directly inserts code checking shadow memory before
+ memory accesses. This is faster than outline (in some workloads
+ it gives about x2 boost over outline instrumentation), but
+ make kernel's .text size much bigger.
