Subject: arm64: mte: reset the page tag in page->flags

The hardware tag-based KASAN for compatibility with the other modes stores
the tag associated to a page in page->flags.  Due to this the kernel
faults on access when it allocates a page with an initial tag and the user
changes the tags.

Reset the tag associated by the kernel to a page in all the meaningful
places to prevent kernel faults on access.

Note: An alternative to this approach could be to modify page_to_virt(). 
This though could end up being racy, in fact if a CPU checks the
PG_mte_tagged bit and decides that the page is not tagged but another CPU
maps the same with PROT_MTE and becomes tagged the subsequent kernel
access would fail.
