[mips] Add support for accessing $gp as a named register.

Authored by dsanders on Jan 9 2015, 7:27 AM.



Mips Linux uses $gp to hold a pointer to thread info structure and accesses it
with a named register. This makes this work for LLVM.

The N32 ABI doesn't quite work yet since the frontend generates incorrect IR
for this case. It neglects to truncate the 64-bit GPR to a 32-bit value before
converting to a pointer. Given correct IR (as in the testcase in this patch),
it works correctly.
