ARMv8.2 adds 16-bit floating point operations as an optional extension
to the ARMv8 FP support. This patch set adds support for the 16-bit FP
instructions to binutils, enabling the instructions when both +fp and
+fp16 architecture extensions are enabled.

The patches in this series:
- Add a feature macro for use by the encoding/decoding mechanism.
- Adjust a utility function, used when disassembling, to support 16-bit
   floating point values.
- Add the new scalar floating-point instructions.

The patches depend on
https://sourceware.org/ml/binutils/2015-11/msg00223.html, which adds the
+fp16 option.

This patch adds the feature macro FP_F16 to the AArch64 encoding/decoding
mechanism, enabling it when both +fp and +fp16 are selected.

Tested the series for aarch64-none-linux gnu with cross-compiled
check-binutils and check-gas.
