[PATCH 4.4 13/15] mm/mempool: avoid KASAN marking mempool poison checks as use-after-free

4.4-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: Matthew Dawson <matthew@xxxxxxxxxxxxx>

commit 7640131032db9118a78af715ac77ba2debeeb17c upstream.

When removing an element from the mempool, mark it as unpoisoned in KASAN
before verifying its contents for SLUB/SLAB debugging.  Otherwise KASAN
will flag the reads checking the element use-after-free writes as
use-after-free reads.
