[PATCH v8 12/20] kasan, arm64: enable top byte ignore for the kernel

Tag-based KASAN uses the Top Byte Ignore feature of arm64 CPUs to store a
pointer tag in the top byte of each pointer. This commit enables the
TCR_TBI1 bit, which enables Top Byte Ignore for the kernel, when tag-based
KASAN is used.
