[ARM] First MVE instructions: scalar shifts.

Authored by miyuki on May 30 2019, 8:19 AM.



This introduces a new decoding table for MVE instructions, and starts
by adding the family of scalar shift instructions that are part of the
MVE architecture extension: saturating shifts within a single GPR, and
long shifts across a pair of GPRs (both saturating and normal).

Some of these shift instructions have only 3-bit register fields in
the encoding, with the low bit fixed. So they can only address an odd
or even numbered GPR (depending on the operand), and therefore I add
two new register classes, GPREven and GPROdd.

I think it would be better to pass bits {5-4} as an argument. Then the definition would look like:

def t2SQSHL : t2MVEShiftSRegImm<"sqshl", 0b11>;

which I think is nicer, conciser, and more consistent (with other .td descriptions).

Same for other instructions further below.

If all of the instructions in this file are expected to be valid with and without FP, we can use the same check-prefix for both. We should also check the error output in the no-FP case.

We should probably also be checking that these instructions are all rejected when MVE is disabled, like you are already doing for disassembly.
