[ARM] Change the MC names for VMAXNM/VMINNM.

Authored by simon_tatham on Apr 15 2019, 5:58 AM.



Now the NEON ones have a prefix "NEON_", and the VFP ones have a
prefix "VFP_". This is so that the regex in can be
made to match both of _those_ classes of VMAXNM without also matching
the MVE ones that are going to be introduced soon. NFCI.

What goes wrong if we don't do this? Does TableGen complain about schedules containing unsupported instructions or something?

It's true that during internal development we implemented this rename before the later change that adds some UnsupportedFeatures to the same schedule model which should rule out the MVE VMAXNM/VMINNM instructions in any case.

But if I revert the rename, it still fails, apparently before even getting as far as checking UnsupportedFeatures. The Tablegen error is

llvm/lib/Target/ARM/ error: Overlapping InstRW def VMAXNMAVf16 also matches (instregex "VMAX", "VMIN")
def : InstRW<[A57Write_5cyc_1V], (instregex "VMAX", "VMIN")>;

OK, it's a bit ugly but pretty limited in scope so I think we can live with it. LGTM.
