Port LLVM and/or GCC kernel ASan pieces to the NetBSD/amd64 kernel.
Integrate the support with the toolchain inside src/.
Add support for a new kernel option (and perhaps configuration) KASAN.

The toolchain support on the LLVM side is done. GCC should work too.

Milestones:

# Build manually the NetBSD kernel against KASan.
# Ensure that we don't violate the license - either ask for relicense or reimplement the needed code. There are around 2k LOC. This code should be relicensed.
# Integrate KASan with the kernel configuration.
# Execute the kernel, attempt to boot to shell.
# Run ATF tests against the kernel.
# Report bugs.
