Align the comment.

This comment is not valid anymore. In this patch you don't use readInstruction16 for mips32r2 (so mips32r2: line is unnecessary). You use it to read 16 bits of a microMIPS instruction (either 16-bit or 32-bit instructions). I think the more appropriate place for the comment is the function readInstruction32, and instead of mips32r2 and microMIPS little-endian byte ordering, the comment should specify the big and little-endian byte ordering of a 32-bit microMIPS instruction. For example:

Big-endian: 0 | 1 | 2 | 3
Little-endian: 1 | 0 | 3 | 2

It is obvious from the ordering, but you may also mention it explicitly that high 16 bits of a 32-bit microMIPS instruction (where the opcode is) always precede the low 16 bits in the instruction stream (that is, they are placed at lower addresses in the instruction stream).

Why not use Mips::GPRMM16RegClassID?

Because we are actually using register indexes that doesn't fit into GPRMM16 set.

Rebased disassembler support for microMIPS 16-bit instructions.

Function DecodeGPRMM16RegisterClass is reimplemented to use GPRMM16RegClassID instead of GPR32RegClassID.

Add '.' at the end.

You can place all parameters on 3 lines:

static DecodeStatus readInstruction16(ArrayRef<uint8_t> Bytes, uint64_t Address,

uint64_t &Size, uint32_t &Insn,
bool IsBigEndian) {
