+    Introduce <a href="">
+      Hardware-assisted AddressSanitizer</a> support.  This sanitizer currently
+    only works for the AArch64 target.  It helps debug address problems
+    similarly to
+    <a href="">
+      AddressSanitizer</a> but is based on partial hardware assistance and
+    provides probabilistic protection to use less RAM at run time.

+      Hardware-assisted AddressSanitizer</a> is not production-ready for user
+    space, and is provided mainly for use compiling the Linux Kernel.
+    </p>
+    To use this sanitizer the command line arguments are:
+    <ul>
+      <li><code>-fsanitize=hwaddress</code> to instrument userspace code.</li>
+      <li><code>-fsanitize=kernel-hwaddress</code> to instrument kernel code.</li>
+    </ul>
