The problem is that if we start using it for ASan, it needs to have a
different default, because ASan wants to abort by default, while UBSan
recover by default.  -fsanitize=kernel-address w (KASan) wants to recover
by default.  So, the option is either to never support recover for
-fsanitize=address, for ubsan keep -fsanitize-recover (by default) as is
and for kasan use that same switch, or have separate flags.
