kasan: fix kmemleak false-positive in kasan_module_alloc()

Kmemleak reports the following leak:

	unreferenced object 0xfffffbfff41ea000 (size 20480):

kasan_module_alloc() allocates shadow memory for module and frees it on
module unloading.  It doesn't store the pointer to allocated shadow memory
because it could be calculated from the shadowed address, i.e.
kasan_mem_to_shadow(addr).

Since kmemleak cannot find pointer to allocated shadow, it thinks that
memory leaked.

Use kmemleak_ignore() to tell kmemleak that this is not a leak and shadow
memory doesn't contain any pointers.
