[PATCH 0/3 v3] [AArch64] Support tagged pointer

ARMv8 supports tagged address, that is, the top one byte in address
is ignored.  It is always enabled on aarch64-linux.  See

Some parts of GDB related to address are updated in this patch series,

 - Memory access, like command 'x',
 - Setting hw breakpoint on some address,
 - Setting watchpoint on some address,

Address tag is treated as non-significant bits of address, so this patch
series add a new gdbarch significant_addr_bit, and use it in gdbarch to
get rid of non-significant bits.  This was the suggestion in the v2 review.

When I test this patch series, and I find a regression in linespec.  I
posted the fix
Without this fix, this series causes a regression.

*** BLURB HERE ***

Yao Qi (3):
  Clear non-significant bits of address on memory access
  Adjust breakpoint address by clearing non-significant bits
  Clear non-significant bits of address in watchpoint
