parentx86/kasan: don't allocate extra shadow memory (diff)
arm64/kasan: don't allocate extra shadow memory
We used to read several bytes of the shadow memory in advance. Therefore additional shadow memory mapped to prevent crash if speculative load would happen near the end of the mapped shadow memory. Now we don't have such speculative loads, so we no longer need to map additional shadow memory.
