Integrate the FP tests with the build system and add some documentation
for the ones run outside the kselftest infrastructure.  The content in
the README was largely written by Dave Martin with edits by me.

+This directory contains a mix of tests integrated with kselftest and
+standalone stress tests.
+
+kselftest tests
+===============
+
+sve-probe-vls - Checks the SVE vector length enumeration interface
+sve-ptrace - Checks the SVE ptrace interface
+
+Running the non-kselftest tests
+===============================
+
+sve-stress performs an SVE context switch stress test, as described
+below.
+
+(The fpsimd-stress test works the same way; just substitute "fpsimd" for
+"sve" in the following commands.)
+
+
+The test runs until killed by the user.
+
+If no context switch error was detected, you will see output such as
+the following:
+
+$ ./sve-stress
+(wait for some time)

+
+
+If an error was detected, details of the mismatch will be printed
+instead of "no error".
+
+Ideally, the test should be allowed to run for many minutes or hours
+to maximise test coverage.
+
+
+KVM stress testing
+==================
+
+To try to reproduce the bugs that we have been observing, sve-stress
+should be run in parallel in two KVM guests, while simultaneously
+running on the host.
+
+1) Start 2 guests, using the following command for each:
+
+$ lkvm run --console=virtio -pconsole=hvc0 --sve Image
+
+(Depending on the hardware GIC implementation, you may also need
+--irqchip=gicv3.  New kvmtool defaults to that if appropriate, but I
+can't remember whether my branch is new enough for that.  Try without
+the option first.)
+
+Kvmtool occupies the terminal until you kill it (Ctrl+A x),
+or until the guest terminates.  It is therefore recommended to run
+each instance in separate terminal (use screen or ssh etc.)  This
+allows multiple guests to be run in parallel while running other
+commands on the host.
+
+Within the guest, the host filesystem is accessible, mounted on /host.
+
+2) Run the sve-stress on *each* guest with the Vector-Length set to 32:
+guest$ ./vlset --inherit 32 ./sve-stress
+
+3) Run the sve-stress on the host with the maximum Vector-Length:
+host$ ./vlset --inherit --max ./sve-stress
+
+
+Again, the test should be allowed to run for many minutes or hours to
+maximise test coverage.
+
+If no error is detected, you will see output from each sve-stress
+instance similar to that illustrated above; otherwise details of the
+observed mismatches will be printed.
