Re: [PATCH] Fix simd attribute handling on aarch64

It should be pretty easy to add a test for this, now that we use
.variant_pcs to mark symbols with the attribute.

I don't think this is enough, since simd_clone_adjust_return_type
does nothing for functions that return void (e.g. sincos).
I think instead aarch64_simd_clone_adjust should do something like:

  TREE_TYPE (node->decl) = build_distinct_type_copy (TREE_TYPE (node->decl));

But maybe that has consequences that I've not thought about...
