[PATCH][AArch64] Use 'x' constraint for vector HFmode multiplication by indexed element instructions

Hi all,

The advsimd-intrinsics.exp tests for the fmul and fmulx instructions that perform a multiplication by indexed element
have started generating invalid assembly in my testing. For example:
Error: register number out of range 0 to 15 at operand 3 -- `fmulx v24.8h,v23.8h,v22.h[0]'

The problem is that the indexed vector register (v22 in this case) has to be in V0-V15 when accessed as a 16-bit element.
The constraints on the pattern don't reflect this. We already have the h_con constraint that's supposed to do what we want,
but it incorrectly returns the "w" constraint for HF inner modes and it isn't applied in all the patterns that it needs to be
(it's needed for the FMLA, FMLS, FMUL, FMULx by element patterns).
This patch fixes those issues by changing h_con to return the "x" constraint for HF inner modes and applying it to all the operands
that need it in aarch64-simd.md

With this patch the advsimd-intrinsics.exp tests now generate valid assembly and don't complain, so no new regression tests are added.

Bootstrapped and tested on aarch64-none-linux-gnu.
Ok for trunk?

     * config/aarch64/iterators.md (h_con): Return "x" for V4HF and V8HF.
     * config/aarch64/aarch64-simd.md (*aarch64_fma4_elt_from_dup<mode>):
     Use h_con constraint for operand 1.
     (*aarch64_fnma4_elt_from_dup<mode>): Likewise.
     (*aarch64_mulx_elt_from_dup<mode>): Likewise for operand 2.
