The partitioned multiplier I had written should implement all the ops you
need other than madd*, though you'd need to either revert or finish off all
the half-completed refactorings.

for the madd* instructions, you would need to sum the third register and
mul.intermediate_output using a 128-bit adder with the register sign or
zero extended as appropriate, then take the lower or upper 64-bits as
indicated by the specific instruction.
a 64*64+64->128-bit madd won't ever overflow the 128 bits for both signed
and unsigned multiplication.

I'll be adding the mul* and madd* instructions to
power-instruction-analyzer shortly.
