Hi

This patch is part of the patch series to add support for ARMv8.5-A
Memory Tagging Extensions.
(https://developer.arm.com/products/architecture/cpu-architecture/a-profile/exploration-tools)
Memory Tagging Extension (MTE) is an optional extension to
ARMv8.5-A and is enabled using the +memtag command line option.

This patch add support to the Pointer Arithmetic instructions from
MTE. These are the following instructions added in this patch:
- SUBP <Xd>, <Xn|SP>, <Xm|SP>
- SUBPS <Xd>, <Xn|SP>, <Xm|SP>
- CMPP <Xn|SP>, <Xm|SP>
where CMPP is an alias to SUBPS XZR, <Xn|SP>, <Xm|SP>

where
<Xd> : Is the 64-bit destination GPR.
<Xn|SP> : Is the 64-bit first source GPR or Stack pointer.
<Xm|SP> : Is the 64-bit second source GPR or Stack pointer.

Testing done: Builds and reg tests all pass on aarch64-none-linux-gnu.
Added test.

Is this ok for trunk?

Thanks
Sudi
