To check whether the CPU and kernel support the MTE features we want
to test, we use an (emulated) CPU ID register read. However we only
check against a very particular feature version (0b0010), even though
the ARM ARM promises ID register features to be backwards compatible.

While this could be fixed by using ">=" instead of "==", we should
actually use the explicit HWCAP2_MTE hardware capability, exposed by the
kernel via the ELF auxiliary vectors.

That moves this responsibility to the kernel, and fixes running the
tests on machines with FEAT_MTE3 capability.
