KASAN is supported on 32-bit powerpc and the docs should reflect this.

Document s390 support while we're at it.

Changes since v5:
 - rebase - riscv has now got support.
 - document s390 support while we're at it
 - clarify when kasan_vmalloc support is required

 This works by hooking into vmalloc and vmap, and dynamically
 allocating real shadow memory to back the mappings.
