Agreed. All the comments I provided are meant to simplify the addition of MTE
support.

Indeed. I was not questioning the pre-existing interface definition, but trying
more to reduce the changes to the ABI to the minimum since:
- prctl does not mandate how to use the arg[2-5]
- prctl interface is flexible enough for the problem to be solved with only one
PR_ command.

I agree on reusing the interface for MTE for the purposes you specified.
