These patch series adds below kselftests to test the user-space support for the
ARMv8.5 Memory Tagging Extension present in arm64 tree [1].

1) This test-case verifies that the memory allocated by kernel mmap interface
can support tagged memory access. It first checks the presence of tags at
address[56:59] and then proceeds with read and write. The pass criteria for
this test is that tag fault exception should not happen.

2) This test-case crosses the valid memory to the invalid memory. In this
memory area valid tags are not inserted so read and write should not pass. The
pass criteria for this test is that tag fault exception should happen for all
the illegal addresses. This test also verfies that PSTATE.TCO works properly.

3) This test-case verifies that the memory inherited by child process from
parent process should have same tags copied. The pass criteria for this test is
that tag fault exception should not happen.

4) This test checks different mmap flags with PROT_MTE memory protection.

5) This testcase checks that KSM should not merge pages containing different
MTE tag values. However, if the tags are same then the pages may merge. This
testcase uses the generic ksm sysfs interfaces to verify the MTE behaviour, so
this testcase is not fullproof and may be impacted due to other load in the system.

6) Fifth test verifies that syscalls read/write etc works by considering that
user pointer has valid/invalid allocation tags.

To simplify the testing, a copy of the patchset on top of a recent linux
tree can be found at [2].
