Where is set_orig_size() function defined? Don't see it upstream nor
in linux-next.
This looks fine but my only concern is that this should not increase
memory consumption when slub debug tracking is not enabled, which
should be the main operation mode when KASAN is enabled. But I can't
figure this out w/o context.
