It depends on how the next iteration looks like. The plan was not to
support this so that we avoid another complication where a non-tagged
page is mprotect'ed to become tagged and it would need to be migrated
out of the CMA range. Not sure how much code it would save.

If you are aware of any vendors not supporting this, please direct them
to the Arm support team, it would be very useful information for us.
