Short summary is it seems possible to support that on rv32-gcc, but
need take some time and discuss to other RISC-V gcc maintainer and
Provide some result from my experimentation with gcc last few days.:
For code gen part:
Need some code to enable __int128_t support on this target, and update
related opcode expansion method on backend.
so the code gen part seems not too hard.
For libgcc part:
Lacks of 128 bits integer support for 32 bits target, we need
implement int128_t functions manually (or doing some hack to make
libgcc generate those functions).
Function list, it's extract from rv64's libgcc :
