[Hexagon] New HVX target features.

Description

[Hexagon] New HVX target features.

This patch lets the llvm tools handle the new HVX target features that
are added by frontend (clang). The target-features are of the form
"hvx-length64b" for 64 Byte HVX mode, "hvx-length128b" for 128 Byte mode HVX.
"hvx-double" is an alias to "hvx-length128b" and is soon will be deprecated.
The hvx version target feature is upgated form "+hvx" to "+hvxv{version_number}.
Eg: "+hvxv62"

For the correct HVX code generation, the user must use the following
target features.
For 64B mode: "+hvxv62" "+hvx-length64b"
For 128B mode: "+hvxv62" "+hvx-length128b"

Clang picks a default length if none is specified. If for some reason,
no hvx-length is specified to llvm, the compilation will bail out.
There is a corresponding clang patch.
