mm/kasan: fix false positive invalid-free reports with CONFIG_KASAN_SW_TAGS=y
The code like this: ptr = kmalloc(size, GFP_KERNEL); page = virt_to_page(ptr); offset = offset_in_page(ptr); kfree(page_address(page) + offset); may produce false-positive invalid-free reports on the kernel with CONFIG_KASAN_SW_TAGS=y. In the example above we lose the original tag assigned to 'ptr', so kfree() gets the pointer with 0xFF tag. In kfree() we check that 0xFF tag is different from the tag in shadow hence print false report. Instead of just comparing tags, do the following: 1) Check that shadow doesn't contain KASAN_TAG_INVALID. Otherwise it's double-free and it doesn't matter what tag the pointer have. 2) If pointer tag is different from 0xFF, make sure that tag in the shadow is the same as in the pointer.
