[PATCH v2 1/1] kasan: Add memzero init for unaligned size under SLUB debug

From: Yee Lee <yee.lee at mediatek.com>

Issue: when SLUB debug is on, hwtag kasan_unpoison() would overwrite the redzone with unaligned object size.

An additional memzero_explicit() path is added to replacing hwtag initialization
at SLUB deubg mode.
