Description

[libunwind][MIPS] Support MIPS floating-point registers for hard-float ABIs.

Summary:
For MIPS ABIs with 64-bit floating point registers including newabi
and O32 with 64-bit floating point registers, just save and restore the
32 floating-point registers as doubles.

For O32 MIPS with 32-bit floating-point registers, save and restore the
individual floating-point registers as "plain" registers. These registers
are encoded as floats rather than doubles, but the DWARF unwinder
assumes that floating-point registers are stored as doubles when reading
them from memory (via AddressSpace::getDouble()). Treating the
registers as "normal" registers instead causes the DWARF unwinder to
fetch them from memory as a 32-bit register. This does mean that for
O32 with 32-bit floating-point registers unw_get_fpreg() and
unw_set_fpreg() do not work. One would have to use unw_get_reg()
and unw_set_reg() instead. However, DWARF unwinding works
correctly as the DWARF CFI emits records for individual 32-bit
floating-point registers even when they are treated as doubles stored
in paired registers. If the lack of unw_get/set_fpreg() becomes a pressing
need in the future for O32 MIPS we could add in special handling to
make it work.
