The Cortex-A72 is an ARMv8 core with the same architectural features as the
Cortex-A57. This patch adds support to GAS for the command line option
-mcpu=cortex-a72 with the same effect as the -mcpu=cortex-a57 option, only
the name being different.

Tested with check-gas for arm-none-linux-gnueabihf. Tested the new cpu
option from the command line.

Ok for trunk?

Ok with a follow up to deal with doc/c-arm.texi


This should be safe for the 2.25 branch too, do you plan to backport it?

I think it makes sense as folks would have this in the distros with the next release of the compiler. We should look at breaking this dependancy in the compiler if possible but that's not going to happen till stage1 for 6.0

Tristan, any objections ?
