Description

[RISCV] Generate address sequences suitable for mcmodel=medium

This patch adds an implementation of a PC-relative addressing sequence to be
used when -mcmodel=medium is specified. With absolute addressing, a 'medium'
codemodel may cause addresses to be out of range. This is because while
'medium' implies a 2 GiB addressing range, this 2 GiB can be at any offset as
opposed to 'small', which implies the first 2 GiB only.

Note that LLVM/Clang currently specifies code models differently to GCC, where
small and medium imply the same functionality as GCC's medlow and medany
respectively.
