It was a straightforward job to implement the "long double"
type in i386 gcc as 128-bit soft-float TFmode with 113-bit precision.
I might still have the patches for that (though they would be about
eight years old now).
You cannot easily have both 80-bit and 128-bit support in gcc at the
same time, however. I think you might have to implement
a "long long double" which probably no one has done yet.
