I think some of my questions are too detailed for this initial patch, I'm sure we can improve the diagnostics over time as situations come up. Glad to see this being upstreamed.
Not very knowledgeable on Mach specifics so I'll leave the final review to others.

Cool, but could you reword it? something like:
// Without PAuth diagnostics we got:
Or "expected codegen and lldb output used to be", so readers have context if they're just looking at this test because it failed and they're not working on pauth specifically.
Also you could put the text in comments instead of an ifdef: (`///` instead of `//` so they look different to check lines)
/// * thread #1, queue = 'com.apple.main-thread', stop reason = EXC_BAD_ACCESS (code=1, address=0x2000000100007f9c)
/// frame #0: 0x0000000100007f9c blraa2`foo
I don't think FileCheck will trip up on anything in this.

So in that case we would report stopped due to a breakpoint, that's a special pac breakpoint but no pointer authentication issue? Isn't that confusing for the user?
Maybe not because it's hinting at accidental corruption vs. deliberate misdirection, you probably have the experiences to inform that.
This is an improvement as is so no need to change it I'm just curious.
Can you add a test for this situation? Assuming you can find an address you know would never be valid.

This one needs a comment like the others:
