riscv: Improve kasan population by using hugepages when possible
The kasan functions that populates the shadow regions used to allocate them page by page and did not take advantage of hugepages, so fix this by trying to allocate hugepages of 1GB and fallback to 2MB hugepages or 4K pages in case it fails. This reduces the page table memory consumption and improves TLB usage, as shown below: Before this patch: ---[ Kasan shadow start ]--- 0xffffffc000000000-0xffffffc400000000 0x00000000818ef000 16G PTE .
