tdesc_register_size returns number of bits.
Change this to use bytes, the same as regcache::register_size, memcpy and sizeof.

This fixes a bug in aarch64_get_tdesc_vq which assumed bytes.

Update all other calls to tdesc_register_size.

I originally planned to fix aarch64_get_tdesc_vq and push as OBV.
However, this seemed the better fix.
Required for 8.2
Tested with make check on a target all build.
I don't have a rs6000 machine, however change is simple enough.

	* target-descriptions.c (tdesc_register_size): Return bytes.
	* target-descriptions.h (tdesc_register_size): Update comment.
	* rs6000-tdep.c (rs6000_gdbarch_init): Assume bytes.

Hi Alan,

Since I work with processors that have 16-bit bytes, I always prefer
expressing sizes in bits, otherwise it's ambiguous.  Are we talking
about 8-bit bytes or target-sized bytes?  So I would have perhaps
chosen to rename tdesc_register_size to tdesc_register_size_bits
(for clarity) and fix up the caller.

Would you be ok with that?  Other than that, the patch looks fine.

Simon
