How much does it slow down execution? If we enable it on syzbot, it
will affect all fuzzing done by syzbot always.
It can tolerate significant slowdown and it's far from a production
kernel (it enables KASAN, KCOV, LOCKDEP and more). But I am still
asking because some debugging features are built without performance
in mind at all (like let's just drop a global lock in every
kmalloc/free, which may be too much even for a standard debug build).
