[RFA] Mips fp register display

This is a re-implemented patch for an obscure mips fp register display
problem. This patch addresses insight as well as cli gdb.  Insight is not 100%
correct: single precision floats are displayed in double format =( (cli gdb
displays both float and double).  I can change REGISTER_VIRTUAL_TYPE() to try
to guess the the intended type (builtin_type_{float,double}), but that is
really not the right place to fix this problem.

Has anyone considered adding float/double options to the insight register
window format menu?  I think that would be the right place to fix this.

	* mips-tdep.c (mips2_read_fp_register): New function.  Reads a
	64-bit float value stored as two 32-bit fragments in consecutive
	float registers.
	(mips2_fp_compat): New function.  Determine if a MIPS3 or later
	cpu is operating in MIPS{1,2} float-compat mode.
	(mips_get_saved_register): Modified to use new
	mips2-compat float support.
	(mips_print_register): Modified to display 64-bit float regs in
	single and double precision.

+/* Read a MIPS{1,2} floating point register.  This is for use on MIPS3 or
+   later cpus operating in MIPS2 fpu compatiblity mode.
+
+   Background: MIPS1 & 2 fp registers are 32 bits wide.  To support
+   64bit operations, these early MIPS cpus treat fp register pairs
+   (f0,f1) as a single register (d0).  Later MIPS cpu's have 64 bit fp
+   registers and offer a compatibility mode that emulates the MIPS2 fp
+   model.  When operating in MIPS2 fp compat mode, later cpu's split
+   double precision floats into two 32-bit chunks and store them in
+   consecutive fp regs.  To display 64-bit floats stored in this
+   fashion, we have to combine 32 bits from f0 and 32 bits from f1.
+   Throw in user-configurable endianness and you have a real mess.
+
+   Note that this only deals with "live" registers at the top of the
+   stack.  We will attempt to deal with saved registers later, when
+   the raw/cooked register interface is in place. (We need a general
+   interface that can deal with dynamic saved register sizes -- fp
+   regs could be 32 bits wide in one frame and 64 on the frame above
+   and below) */
