Feature/sve float

Giacomo Castiglioni requested to merge castigli/nektar:feature/sve-float into master

Issue/feature addressed

SVE backend was disabled when we introduced support for float SIMD vectors. Requires !1357 (closed) to be merged first.

Proposed solution

Implemented float sve type, adjusted mask type accordingly.


SVE is peculiar because the vector width depends on the machine, for this reason the concrete types are differentiated by the number of bits instead of the number of lanes as the x86_64 backends.
