There are a few datatypes that are target specific: ppc128 only works on ppc,
f80 only works on x86.  I don't think we'll ever add legalize support for these
datatypes for targets that don't natively support them.

You could argue that the backend should use llvm_report_error to indicate this
error instead of crashing.  If you think that this would be useful, please file
a new bugzilla asking for this, thanks!
