No objections from binutils for this, although it is officially a GDB 
header file so make sure that you get agreement from them before 
committing your change.  One point though:

> +  /* VAX byte order.  */
> +  floatformat_vax

I think that having a more descriptive comment for the VAX byte order 
would be helpful.  eg describing the layout of 1.2345678e10 as is done 
with the other entries in this enum.
