RISC-V glibc Port v3

It's been about a week since the last patch set, and while there's a bit more
work to do I wanted to get something out so everyone is one the same page.  The
major milestone here is that we now pass -- or at least we
did a few hours ago, but I've rebased recently so some trouble may have snuck
in (I'm running another build now, but it'll take hours).  We still need to get
things running natively to see the test suite results, but I think I've
responded to all the feedback from v2 patch set aside from the what's listed
below.  Sorry if I've missed anything, feel free to just poke the v2 email so
it ends up back in my inbox.

Thanks to everyone for all the help!

There are a few things I still need to do:

* I need to go through and sanitize the floating-point routines, which I had to
  refactor as a result of the new FP aliasing mechanism.
* Our test suite results are very bad, but I believe this is because we're
  running on QEMU's user-mode emulation which is known to be both buggy and
  incomplete.  I'm bringing up userspace again to produce a more reasonable
  test suite run, which will hopefully have a much cleaner run.
* I need to generate the ulps files, what exist are just placeholders.
* I need to add a soft-fp directory, which should be very quick to do but all
  my build machines are tied up running 
* I don't yet understand the API we should have for __riscv_flush_icache,
  there's an email thread about this on the v2 patch set.
* We only have 4 of our 6 supported configurations in,
  I'll add the remaining two as build time permits.

Here's a summary of the changes since the previous patch set:

* We now have 4 ABI/ISA pairs in, which is clean (with the
  newest linux headers, see the patch for details).
* Support for ilp32f and lp64f have been removed.
* Support for systems without the A extension has been removed.
* There are now ABI lists.
* Many whitespace fixes to meet glibc's standards.
* Included C and ASM files from other ports have been copied into ours.
* with_fp_cond is now set, but I don't have a soft-fp directory yet.
* We no longer maintain a -mno-plt list in our port, that existed to work
  around a linker bug and is now defunct.
* A handful of header files (mostly ucontext.h) have been cleaned up to be
  namespace clean.

And here's a log of all the other summaries:

[v1] A (very brief, as it's been 6 months) summary of the changes since the v1
patch set includes:

* Many copyright cleanups.
* We're using the generic versions of a handful of functions and headers,
  including ieee754.h, mathdef.h mathinline.h, fabs{,f}, and
* Removal of lots of head code, including pthread_lock, atomic_fast.
* A handful of ABI fixes to match our upstreamed Linux port, including
  sigcontext, instruction-cache flushing, and some syscall sanitization.
* We've changed to use libm_alias_{float,double}, like upstream
* Compiler builtins are used for atomics where possible.
* We now mandate the A extension in Linux, support for non-A systems has been
  removed from glibc.
