+	  Memory Tagging (part of the ARMv8.5 Extensions) provides
+	  architectural support for run-time, always-on detection of
+	  various classes of memory error to aid with software debugging
+	  to eliminate vulnerabilities arising from memory-unsafe
+	  languages.
+
+	  This option enables the support for the Memory Tagging
+	  Extension at EL0 (i.e. for userspace).
+
+	  Selecting this option allows the feature to be detected at
+	  runtime. Any secondary CPU not implementing this feature will
+	  not be allowed a late bring-up.
+
+	  Userspace binaries that want to use this feature must
+	  explicitly opt in. The mechanism for the userspace is
+	  described in:
+
+	  Documentation/arm64/memory-tagging-extension.rst.
