[committed] MIPS: Verify the ISA mode and alignment of branch and jump targets

Verify that the ISA mode of branch targets is the same as the referring 
relocation, so that an attempt to produce a branch between instructions 
encoded in different ISA modes each causes an error rather than silently 
producing non-functional code.  Make sure that no symbol or addend bits 
are silently truncated: terminate with an error if the relocation value 
calculated cannot be encoded in the relocatable field of a branch; for
REL targets also applying to any intermediate addend.

Also make jump target's alignment verification consistent with that for 

This change will require an update to some obscure handcoded assembly 
sources which make branches to labels placed at data objects, however 
for microMIPS code only.  These labels will have to be updated with the 
`.insn' directive for containing code to assemble and link successfully.  
Such code is broken as any such labels have always been required by the 
microMIPS architecture specification[1][2] to be annotated this way for 
correct interpretation, and with our old code missing `.insn' directives 
caused labels to present different semantics depending on whether they 
were referred with branch (ISA bit ignored) or other relocations (ISA 
bit respected).

Enforcing these checks however will ensure errors in building software, 
like mixed regular MIPS and microMIPS code links with branches between, 
will be diagnosed at the build time rather than causing odd run-time 
errors such as intermittent crashes.  It will also let cross-mode BAL 
instructions be converted to JALX instructions, with a separate change.
