See target.def.

You'll need a GCC-specific enum (GCC_FP_INT_*, say) that GCC uses 
internally, and a hook that maps between that and FP_INT_*.  I'm guessing 
that for the likely uses, maybe the hook should map from FP_INT_* to 
GCC_FP_INT_* (so it gets used on constant arguments to the built-in 
function to say which rounding direction they are in GCC's internal enum).  
It will need to be able to return that a constant doesn't map to a known 
rounding mode (not an error, just means that call can't be expanded inline 
or optimized to a constant).

Then the relevant macro giving the default for glibc systems should be 
defined in config/gnu-user.h (see how it defines e.g.

The new RTL would effectively be variants of the fix_trunc and 
fixuns_trunc patterns, which can use (fix) and (unsigned_fix) RTL; the new 
variants would take an argument in a floating-point mode, returning one in 
an integer mode - but with extra information involved about the number of 
bits, rounding direction, handling of "inexact".

fix_trunc and fixuns_trunc / (fix) and (unsigned_fix) always use 
FP_INT_TOWARDZERO, always use the width of the mode and have unspecified 
"inexact" handling for non-integer in-range values (they correspond to C 
casts) so are not themselves suitable for implementing the new built-in 
functions (but the particular instructions those patterns expand to are 
likely to be suitable for certain arguments to certain of the new built-in
