To be clear for those not already familiar with the NEON support: this is 
not an integer type in the sense of being able to carry out any arithmetic 
on it, it's a mode needed for the insn patterns for intrinsics for certain 
NEON instructions that load or store 64 bytes in consecutive NEON 
registers.
