tracing, kasan: Silence Kasan warning in check_stack of stack_tracer

When enabling stack trace via "echo 1 > /proc/sys/kernel/stack_tracer_enabled",
the below KASAN warning is triggered:

The stacker tracer traverses the whole kernel stack when saving the max stack
trace. It may touch the stack red zones to cause the warning. So, just disable
the instrumentation to silence the warning.
