Notes:
    v9:
    - Slight improvement on the ARM64_AS_HAS_MTE comment.
    
    v7:
    - Binutils gained initial support for MTE in 2.32.0. However, a late
      architecture addition (LDGM/STGM) is only supported in the newer
      2.32.x and 2.33 versions. Change the AS_HAS_MTE option to also check
      for stgm in addition to .arch armv8.5-a+memtag.
    
    v6:
    - Remove select ARCH_USES_PG_ARCH_2, no longer defined.
    
    v5:
    - Remove duplicate ARMv8.5 menu entry.
    
    v4:
    - select ARCH_USES_PG_ARCH_2.
    - remove ARCH_NO_SWAP.
    - default y.

+	  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.
