Have you looked into how AARCH64 back-end handles this via OI, etc.
Like:
/* Oct Int: 256-bit integer mode needed for 32-byte vector arguments.  */
INT_MODE (OI, 32);

/* Opaque integer modes for 3 or 4 Neon q-registers / 6 or 8 Neon d-registers
   (2 d-regs = 1 q-reg = TImode).  */
INT_MODE (CI, 48);
INT_MODE (XI, 64);


And then it implements TARGET_ARRAY_MODE_SUPPORTED_P. target hook?
And the x2 types are defined as a struct of an array like:
typedef struct int8x8x2_t
{
  int8x8_t val[2];
} int8x8x2_t;

Thanks,
Andrew
