[compiler-rt] [builtins] Support conversion between fp16 and fp128

This patch adds both extendhftf2 and trunctfhf2 to support
conversion between half-precision and quad-precision floating-point
values. They are built iff the compiler supports _Float16.

Some notes on ARM plaforms: while fp16 is supported on all
architectures, _Float16 is supported only for 32-bit ARM, 64-bit ARM,
and SPIR (as indicated by clang/docs/LanguageExtensions.rst). Also,
fp16 is a storage format and 64-bit ARM supports floating-point
convert precision to half as base armv8-a instruction.

This patch does not change the ABI for 32-bit ARM, it will continue
to pass _Float16 as uint16.
