Avoid LOAD_EXTEND_OP on non-integer mode

The documentation for LOAD_EXTEND_OP says:

    This macro is not called with @var{mem_mode} non-integral or with a
    width greater than or equal to @code{BITS_PER_WORD}, so you may return
    any value in this case.

However, it does appear to be called for floating-point modes in some
cases.  In 4.3-based sources I observed it being called from
simplify_set when loading an SFmode value, resulting in zero_extend:DI
of such a value - zero_extend of a floating-point value not being
well-defined.  In turn simplify_const_unary_operation ICEd on an
operation it was not expecting for floating-point modes.  The test, on
MIPS N64 soft-float, was from the glibc testsuite and reduced to:

extern float cf (float _Complex);
static float p, m;

c (void)
  _Complex float r, r2;
  __real__ r = p;
  __imag__ r = 1.0;
  cf (r);

  __real__ r2 = m;
  __imag__ r2 = 1.0;
  cf (r2);

but I do not have a test showing an ICE for FSF sources.  I did
however verify that if I add (in FSF sources) an assert to
simplify_set that the mode is an integer mode in the case where
LOAD_EXTEND_OP would be called, the assert triggered while building

This patch avoids calling LOAD_EXTEND_OP for non-integer modes in the
particular case where I observed this problem (I suspect it may arise
in other cases as well).  Tested with no regressions with cross to
mips64octeon-linux-gnu.  OK to commit?
