Yes, you need an addsfkf2 as well as adddfkf2 (and tf variants of those,
there are iterators for that).

KF is IEEE QP float.  TF is whatever long double maps to, IEEE QP or

SF is "f".  KF does not fit in "d".

You won't need constraints anyway.  There already is add<mode>3_odd and
you can just use that, in a new defione_expand you make.  For example,
for DP you need two insns: xsaddqpo followed by xscvqpdp.  The second
of those is the existing insn pattern trunc<mode>df2_hw, so you just get
something like

(define_expand "adddfkf2"
  [(set (match_operand:DF 0 "gpc_reg_operand")
        (unspec:DF [(match_operand:IEEE128 1 "gpc_reg_operand")
		    (match_operand:IEEE128 2 "gpc_reg_operand")]
  "TARGET_FLOAT128_HW && FLOAT128_IEEE_P (<MODE>mode)"
  rtx tmp = gen_reg_rtx (<MODE>mode);
  emit_insn (gen_add<mode>3_odd (tmp, operands[1])))), operands[2]);
  emit_insn (trunc<mode>df2_hw (operands[0], tmp));

(not tested at all, be careful :-) )

For ISA 2.07 (Power 8) you don't have IEEE128 at all, not in hardware
that is.  I don't know if we'll want fadd support in the emulation
libraries ever; don't worry about it for now, anyway.

"long double is double" you should probably handle in generic code.
"long double is double-double", well, fadd cannot really be done better
than an add followed by a conversion in that case?  Which boils down
to truncating the inputs to double, and then doing whatever you would
do for IEEE DP float.
