FWIW none of that is implemented yet and I don't think the mismatching names is
any intention, it's just due to the timing when they were implemented. (mte is
possibly the only one with this issue)

Happy to discuss that RFC if you've got specific concerns, it's not set in
stone by any means. (I think there was some GNU input but it's been a while)

LLVM can add +memtag as an alias for +mte to its "backend feature".

Sounds good to me.

Do you have an example of what we want this to look like? Is there existing
code that uses it with gas perhaps.
