This patch removes several incorrectly documented functions from the "PowerPC
AltiVec Built-in Functions" section of the "Using the GNU Compiler Collection"
manual.

The following two functions are removed because they are not implemented:

  vector float vec_copysign (vector float);
  vector float vec_recip (vector float, vector float);

The following six functions are removed because though they are implemented,
they are not specified in the AltiVec PIM document and the type of the result
vector does not match the type of the supplied pointer argument:

  vector signed int vec_lde (int, const long long *);
  vector unsigned int vec_lde (int, const unsigned long long *);

  vector int vec_ld (int, long *)
  vector unsigned int vec_ld (int, const unsigned long *);

  vector signed int vec_lvewx (int, long *);
  vector unsigned int vec_lvewx (int, unsigned long *);

The following two functions are removed because they are not implemented. 
Also, they are not specified in the AltiVec PIM document and the type of
the result vector does not match the type of the supplied pointer argument:

  vector signed int vec_ldl (int, const long *);
  vector unsigned int vec_ldl (int, const unsigned long *);

The following four functions are removed because they are not implemented. 
They do happen to be specified in the AltiVec PIM document. Until they are
implemented, they should not be documented:

  void vec_st (vector pixel, int, unsigned short *)
  void vec_st (vector pixel, int, short *)

  void vec_stl (vector pixel, int, unsigned short *);
  void vec_stl (vector pixel, int, short *);

The following two functions are removed because they are not implemented.
They are not specified in the AltiVec PIM or ABI v.2 documents:

  void vec_stvehx (vector pixel, int, short *);
  void vec_stvehx (vector pixel, int, unsigned short *);

The following function was incompletely documented.  The argument list lacked
a closing parenthesis.  There is no function by this name.

  test_vsi_packsu_vssi_vssi (vector signed short x,

This patch successfully builds on both powerpc64le-unknown-linux (P8) and on
powerpc-linux (P7 big-endian, with both -m32 and -m64 target options).


The patch affects only extend.texi.  The gcc.pdf file has been built
and reviewed.

Is this ok for the trunk?

Should they be though?  The corresponding __builtin_* exist?  But I guess
no one has ever tried to use it even.

Ack.

Ah, you're leaving vec_ldl, just removing this paremeter combination.  Ack.

If no one missed it so far, it is never going to happen :-)

Heh.


Okay for trunk.  Thanks!
