This patch adds the Aarch64 SVE specific HWCAP_SVE define.

The Linux kernel changes for Aaarch64 SVE have recently been pulled
into the head:
Although not due to be in a kernel release until early 2018, we'd
like to make sure any newlib changes are ready for a similar time.

I haven't run any testsuites as the changes are should not effect them.

Is this ok?
