BTW, you could add

Co-developed-by: Catalin Marinas <catalin.marinas@arm.com>

since I wrote the malloc() etc. hooks.

With the prctl() option, this function becomes (if you have a better
idea, fine by me):

----------8<---------------
#include <stdlib.h>
#include <sys/prctl.h>

#define TAG_SHIFT (56)
#define TAG_MASK (0xffUL << TAG_SHIFT)

#define PR_SET_TAGGED_ADDR_CTRL 55
#define PR_GET_TAGGED_ADDR_CTRL 56
# define PR_TAGGED_ADDR_ENABLE (1UL << 0)

void *__libc_malloc(size_t size);
void __libc_free(void *ptr);
void *__libc_realloc(void *ptr, size_t size);
void *__libc_calloc(size_t nmemb, size_t size);

static void *tag_ptr(void *ptr)
{
static int tagged_addr_err = 1;
unsigned long tag = 0;

if (tagged_addr_err == 1)
tagged_addr_err = prctl(PR_SET_TAGGED_ADDR_CTRL,
PR_TAGGED_ADDR_ENABLE, 0, 0, 0);

if (!ptr)
return ptr;
if (!tagged_addr_err)
tag = rand() & 0xff;

return (void *)((unsigned long)ptr | (tag << TAG_SHIFT));
}
