[PULL 02/40] linux-user: Introduce PAGE_ANON

Subject: [PULL 02/40] linux-user: Introduce PAGE_ANON

From: Richard Henderson <richard.henderson@linaro.org>

Record whether the backing page is anonymous, or if it has file
backing.  This will allow us to get close to the Linux AArch64
ABI for MTE, which allows tag memory only on ram-backed VMAs.

The real ABI allows tag memory on files, when those files are
on ram-backed filesystems, such as tmpfs.  We will not be able
to implement that in QEMU linux-user.

Thankfully, anonymous memory for malloc arenas is the primary
consumer of this feature, so this restricted version should
still be of use.
