KASAN uses stackdepot to memorize stacks for all kmalloc/kfree calls.
Current stackdepot capacity is 16MB (1024 top level entries x 4 pages on
second level).  Size of each stack is (num_frames + 3) * sizeof(long).
Which gives us ~84K stacks.  This capacity was chosen empirically and it
is enough to run kernel normally.

However, when lots of configs are enabled and a fuzzer tries to maximize
code coverage, it easily hits the limit within tens of minutes.  I've
tested for long a time with number of top level entries bumped 4x
(4096).  And I think I've seen overflow only once.  But I don't have all
configs enabled and code coverage has not reached maximum yet.  So bump
it 8x to 8192.

Since we have two-level table, memory cost of this is very moderate --
currently the top-level table is 8KB, with this patch it is 64KB, which
is negligible under KASAN.

Here is some approx math.

128MB allows us to memorize ~670K stacks (assuming stack is ~200b).
I've grepped kernel for kmalloc|kfree|kmem_cache_alloc|kmem_cache_free|
kzalloc|kstrdup|kstrndup|kmemdup and it gives ~60K matches.  Most of
alloc/free call sites are reachable with only one stack.  But some
utility functions can have large fanout.  Assuming average fanout is 5x,
total number of alloc/free stacks is ~300K.
