I think this can be done only when CONFIG_KASAN_GENERIC.
Only CONFIG_KASAN_GENERIC stores free meta info in objects:
https://elixir.bootlin.com/linux/latest/source/mm/kasan/common.c#L176

And KASAN_HW_TAGS has chances of being enabled with DEBUG_SLUB in
real-world uses (with Arm MTE).

Lots of code...

This SLAB_STORE_USER seems to be set on all kmalloc slabs by default
when CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG is enabled, right?
And KASAN enables CONFIG_SLUB_DEBUG, this means that this is stored
always when KASAN is enabled? Looks wrong.
