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 Tag Getting instruction from
MTE:
- LDG <Xt>, [<Xn|SP>, #<simm>]

where
<Xt> : Is the 64-bit destination GPR.
<Xn|SP> : Is the 64-bit first source GPR or Stack pointer.
<simm> : Is the optional signed immediate offset, a multiple of 16
in the range of -4096 and 4080, defaulting to 0.

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

Is this ok for trunk?

Thanks
Sudi
