Subject: [PATCH 25/35] kasan: introduce CONFIG_KASAN_HW_TAGS

This patch adds a configuration option for a new KASAN mode called
hardware tag-based KASAN. This mode uses the memory tagging approach
like the software tag-based mode, but relies on arm64 Memory Tagging
Extension feature for tag management and access checking.
