Summary: KASAN: turn CONFIG_KASAN_STACK into bool

Description Andrey Konovalov 2020-11-16 13:50:19 UTC
CONFIG_KASAN_STACK config option is currently defined as an int, while it's logically a bool. This is a bit confusing and is worth fixing.

FWIW we could also have just 1 config instead of 2 as well (CONFIG_KASAN_STACK/CONFIG_KASAN_STACK_ENABLE).
For gcc we could do no prompt and default value y, and for clang --
prompt and default value n. I think it should do what we need.

Hi Dmitry/Andrey,

I already sent one patch(kasan: remove redundant config option) to fix it.
Thank you for your suggestion.
