Series arm64: ARMv8.5-A: MTE: Add async mode support | expand

Commit Message

Architectures supported by KASAN_HW_TAGS can provide a sync or async mode
of execution. On an MTE enabled arm64 hw for example this can be identified
with the synchronous or asynchronous tagging mode of execution.
In synchronous mode, an exception is triggered if a tag check fault occurs.
In asynchronous mode, if a tag check fault occurs, the TFSR_EL1 register is
updated asynchronously. The kernel checks the corresponding bits
periodically.

KASAN requires a specific kernel command line parameter to make use of this
hw features.

Add KASAN HW execution mode kernel command line parameter.

Note: This patch adds the kasan.mode kernel parameter and the
sync/async kernel command line options to enable the described features.
