This issue was found when adbd trying to open functionfs with AIO mode.
Usually, we need to set "setprop sys.usb.ffs.aio_compat 0" to enable
adbd with AIO mode on Android.

When adbd is opening functionfs, it will try to read 24 bytes at the
fisrt read I/O control. If this reading has been failed, adbd will
try to send FUNCTIONFS_CLEAR_HALT to functionfs. When adbd is in AIO
mode, functionfs will be acted with asyncronized I/O path. After the
successful read transfer has been completed by gadget hardware, the
following series of functions will be called.
  ffs_epfile_async_io_complete() -> ffs_user_copy_worker() ->
    copy_to_iter() -> _copy_to_iter() -> copyout() ->
    iterate_and_advance() -> iterate_iovec()

Adding debug trace to these functions, it has been found that in
copyout(), access_ok() will check if the user space address is valid
to write. However if CONFIG_ARM64_TAGGED_ADDR_ABI is enabled, adbd
always passes user space address start with "0x3C" to gdaget's AIO
blocks. This tagged address will cause access_ok() check always fail.
Which causes later calculation in iterate_iovec() turn zero.
Copyout() won't copy data to userspace since the length to be copied
"v.iov_len" will be zero. Finally leads ffs_copy_to_iter() always return
-EFAULT, causes adbd cannot open functionfs and send
