Fix E500 complex double va_arg

This patch fixes va_arg for _Complex double for E500.  _Complex double
is passed in four registers, 32 bits each, not necessarily aligned to
an even register pair (unlike 2-register types such as double which
are aligned to even pairs), so may only be 4-byte-aligned in the
register save area, so cannot simply be loaded from there with a
pointer dereference.  I've fixed this by using much the same code as
SPARC uses to make such an unaligned load via a temporary.

Tested with no regressions with cross to powerpc-none-linux-gnuspe
--enable-e500_double, mainline, 4.2 and 4.1.  OK to commit to mainline,
4.2, 4.1?

This fixes the following test failures:

FAIL: gcc.dg/compat/scalar-by-value-3 c_compat_x_tst.o-c_compat_y_tst.o execute
FAIL: gcc.dg/compat/scalar-return-3 c_compat_x_tst.o-c_compat_y_tst.o execute

	* config/rs6000/rs6000.c (rs6000_gimplify_va_arg): If
	STRICT_ALIGNMENT and the type is more aligned than the saved
	registers, copy via a temporary.
