[PATCH, BINUTILS, AARCH64, 6/8] Add Bulk Allocation Tag instructions in Memory Tagging Extension

This patch is part of the patch series to add support for ARMv8.5-A
Memory Tagging Extensions.
Memory Tagging Extension (MTE) is an optional extension to
ARMv8.5-A and is enabled using the +memtag command line option.

This patch add support to the Bulk Allocation Tag instructions from
MTE. These are the following instructions added in this patch:
- LDGV <Xt>, [<Xn|SP>]!
- STGV <Xt>, [<Xn|SP>]!

This needed a new kind of operand for the new addressing [<Xn|SP>]!
since this has no offset and only takes a pre-indexed version.
Hence AARCH64_OPND_ADDR_SIMPLE_2 and ldtdgv_indexed are introduced.
(AARCH64_OPND_ADDR_SIMPLE fulfilled the no offset criteria but does
not allow writeback). We also needed new encoding and decoding
functions to be able to do the same.

<Xt> : Is the 64-bit destination GPR.
<Xn|SP> : Is the 64-bit first source GPR or Stack pointer.

Testing done: Builds and reg tests all pass on aarch64-none-linux-gnu.
Added test.

Is this ok for trunk?
