I run arm64 devices.
If the tagged pointer is enabled, the ARM top-byte Ignore is also
enabled. It means the top-byte is always be ignored.

I think the kernel should not break existing userspace program, so it's
better to handle the tagged user pointer in kernel.

grep 'untag' mm -RnH to see existing examples.
