Not trying to offend you, but you comments seems overly alarmist. KASAN is a
debug feature, generally we don't write code around debug features (especially
ones which aren't merged yet). It would not be hard to correct our use of string
functions when your KASAN enablement is merged, I'm sure you could do it, but I would be happy
to do it also. The other comments you had I don't think rise to the level of
stopping a pull request. Our code is stabilized, so I'm not going to
re-design it at a late date like this.
I think the pull request is still valid.
