I'm ok with asm/memory.h for kasan, no need to change that. You can also
keep these functions in asm/mte-kasan.h but add a comment that they are
only for the kasan interface defined in asm/memory.h.

And this include should be replaced by asm/mte-hwdef.h.

I don't mind the name, just trying to find some consistency in the
headers.

I don't think we should bother, it may not even matter.

Well, you concluded that but I haven't confirmed ;). Since it's called
from a single place which does the checks already, I don't see the point
in duplicating them. Documenting should be sufficient.
