Kelvin Nilsen May 9, 2018, 5:42 p.m.
This is the first of several planned patches to address shortcomings in
existing documentation of PowerPC built-in functions.  The focus of this
particular patch is to improve documentation of basic built-in functions
that do not require inclusion of special header files.

A summary of this patch follows:

1. Change the name of the first PowerPC built-in section from 
   "PowerPC Built-in Functions" to "Basic PowerPC Built-in Functions".
   This section has never described all PowerPC built-in functions.

2. Introduce subsubsections within this section to independently describe
   built-in functions that target particular ISA levels.  Sort function
   descriptions into appropriate subsubsections.

3. Add descriptions of three new features that can be tested with the
   __builtin_cpu_supports function: darn, htm-no-suspend, and scv.

4. Corrected the spellings of several built-in functions:
   __builtin_fmaf128_round_to_odd, __builtin_addg6s, __builtin_cbctdt,
   __builtin_cdtbcd.

This patch is limited in scope in order to manage complexity of the
diffs.  Subsequent patches will address different sections of the
documentation.  Subsequent patches will also add new function descriptions
into these sections.

This differs from the previous draft patch in the following regards:

1. This patch adds back in documentation of the __builtin_fabsq,
   __builtin_copysignq, __builtin_infq, __builtin_huge_valq, __builtin_nanq,
   __builtin_nansq, __builtin_sqrtf128, and __builtin_fmaf128 functions.

2. Consistently, changed subsubsection names from
   "Low-Level PowerPC Built-in ... " to "Basic PowerPC Built-in ... "

3. Changed subsubsection name from "... Available on All Targets" to
   "... Available on All Configurations".

4. Used @code{} font for darn and tsuspend. instruction names.

5. Removed unnecessary parentheses around many option descriptions.

6. Clarified that the result returned from the __builtin_darn_32 function is
   conditioned.

7. Enhanced the ChangeLog to call out each of the subsection names
   (within extend.texi) that is affected by this patch.

8. Changed the menu reference to the newly named "Basic PowerPC Built-in
   Functions"

9. Added a new sub-menu to identify the subsubsections of the "Basic PowerPC
   Built-in Functions" section.

I have bootstrapped and regression tested without regressions on both
powerpc64le-unknown-linux (P8) and on powerpc-linux (P8 big-endian,
with both -m32 and -m64 target options).  I have built and reviewed the
gcc.pdf on the little-endian test platform.  I did not build the gcc.pdf 
file on my big-endian test platform because it is missing relevant fonts.

Is this ok for the trunk?

After the patch it looks like this:

* NDS32 Built-in Functions::
* picoChip Built-in Functions::
* Basic PowerPC Built-in Functions::
* PowerPC AltiVec/VSX Built-in Functions::
* PowerPC Hardware Transactional Memory Built-in Functions::
* PowerPC Atomic Memory Operation Functions::
* RX Built-in Functions::
* S/390 System z Built-in Functions::

I think it is nicer to just have a single "PowerPC Built-in Functions"
node, with then everything else hanging from a menu in there (as you have
for "Basic PowerPC Built-in Functions" now; so just rename that and put
the V*X, TM, atomic nodes in that menu too; probably need to make those
subsubsections or such).

But please commit this now, it's a nice improvement already.  Thanks!

-The @code{vec_all_nez}, @code{vec_any_eqz}, and @code{vec_cmpnez}
-perform pairwise comparisons between the elements at the same
-positions within their two vector arguments.
-The @code{vec_all_nez} function returns a
-non-zero value if and only if all pairwise comparisons are not
-equal and no element of either vector argument contains a zero.
-The @code{vec_any_eqz} function returns a
-non-zero value if and only if at least one pairwise comparison is equal
-or if at least one element of either vector argument contains a zero.
-The @code{vec_cmpnez} function returns a vector of the same type as
-its two arguments, within which each element consists of all ones to
-denote that either the corresponding elements of the incoming arguments are
-not equal or that at least one of the corresponding elements contains
-zero.  Otherwise, the element of the returned vector contains all zeros.
-
-The @code{vec_cntlz_lsbb} function returns the count of the number of
-consecutive leading byte elements (starting from position 0 within the
-supplied vector argument) for which the least-significant bit
-equals zero.  The @code{vec_cnttz_lsbb} function returns the count of
-the number of consecutive trailing byte elements (starting from
-position 15 and counting backwards within the supplied vector
-argument) for which the least-significant bit equals zero.
-
-The @code{vec_xl_len} and @code{vec_xst_len} functions require a
-64-bit environment supporting ISA 3.0 or later.  The @code{vec_xl_len}
-function loads a variable length vector from memory.  The
-@code{vec_xst_len} function stores a variable length vector to memory.
-With both the @code{vec_xl_len} and @code{vec_xst_len} functions, the
-@code{addr} argument represents the memory address to or from which
-data will be transferred, and the
-@code{len} argument represents the number of bytes to be
-transferred, as computed by the C expression @code{min((len & 0xff), 16)}.
-If this expression's value is not a multiple of the vector element's
-size, the behavior of this function is undefined.
-In the case that the underlying computer is configured to run in
-big-endian mode, the data transfer moves bytes 0 to @code{(len - 1)} of
-the corresponding vector.  In little-endian mode, the data transfer
-moves bytes @code{(16 - len)} to @code{15} of the corresponding
-vector.  For the load function, any bytes of the result vector that
-are not loaded from memory are set to zero.
-The value of the @code{addr} argument need not be aligned on a
-multiple of the vector's element size.
-
-The @code{vec_xlx} and @code{vec_xrx} functions extract the single
-element selected by the @code{index} argument from the vector
-represented by the @code{data} argument.  The @code{index} argument
-always specifies a byte offset, regardless of the size of the vector
-element.  With @code{vec_xlx}, @code{index} is the offset of the first
-byte of the element to be extracted.  With @code{vec_xrx}, @code{index}
-represents the last byte of the element to be extracted, measured
-from the right end of the vector.  In other words, the last byte of
-the element to be extracted is found at position @code{(15 - index)}.
-There is no requirement that @code{index} be a multiple of the vector
-element size.  However, if the size of the vector element added to
-@code{index} is greater than 15, the content of the returned value is
-undefined.

+
+The @code{vec_all_nez}, @code{vec_any_eqz}, and @code{vec_cmpnez}
+perform pairwise comparisons between the elements at the same
+positions within their two vector arguments.
+The @code{vec_all_nez} function returns a
+non-zero value if and only if all pairwise comparisons are not
+equal and no element of either vector argument contains a zero.
+The @code{vec_any_eqz} function returns a
+non-zero value if and only if at least one pairwise comparison is equal
+or if at least one element of either vector argument contains a zero.
+The @code{vec_cmpnez} function returns a vector of the same type as
+its two arguments, within which each element consists of all ones to
+denote that either the corresponding elements of the incoming arguments are
+not equal or that at least one of the corresponding elements contains
+zero.  Otherwise, the element of the returned vector contains all zeros.
+
+The @code{vec_cntlz_lsbb} function returns the count of the number of
+consecutive leading byte elements (starting from position 0 within the
+supplied vector argument) for which the least-significant bit
+equals zero.  The @code{vec_cnttz_lsbb} function returns the count of
+the number of consecutive trailing byte elements (starting from
+position 15 and counting backwards within the supplied vector
+argument) for which the least-significant bit equals zero.
+
+The @code{vec_xl_len} and @code{vec_xst_len} functions require a
+64-bit environment supporting ISA 3.0 or later.  The @code{vec_xl_len}
+function loads a variable length vector from memory.  The
+@code{vec_xst_len} function stores a variable length vector to memory.
+With both the @code{vec_xl_len} and @code{vec_xst_len} functions, the
+@code{addr} argument represents the memory address to or from which
+data will be transferred, and the
+@code{len} argument represents the number of bytes to be
+transferred, as computed by the C expression @code{min((len & 0xff), 16)}.
+If this expression's value is not a multiple of the vector element's
+size, the behavior of this function is undefined.
+In the case that the underlying computer is configured to run in
+big-endian mode, the data transfer moves bytes 0 to @code{(len - 1)} of
+the corresponding vector.  In little-endian mode, the data transfer
+moves bytes @code{(16 - len)} to @code{15} of the corresponding
+vector.  For the load function, any bytes of the result vector that
+are not loaded from memory are set to zero.
+The value of the @code{addr} argument need not be aligned on a
+multiple of the vector's element size.
+
+The @code{vec_xlx} and @code{vec_xrx} functions extract the single
+element selected by the @code{index} argument from the vector
+represented by the @code{data} argument.  The @code{index} argument
+always specifies a byte offset, regardless of the size of the vector
+element.  With @code{vec_xlx}, @code{index} is the offset of the first
+byte of the element to be extracted.  With @code{vec_xrx}, @code{index}
+represents the last byte of the element to be extracted, measured
+from the right end of the vector.  In other words, the last byte of
+the element to be extracted is found at position @code{(15 - index)}.
+There is no requirement that @code{index} be a multiple of the vector
+element size.  However, if the size of the vector element added to
+@code{index} is greater than 15, the content of the returned value is
+undefined.
