20 “P” Standard Extension for Packed-SIMD Instructions, Version 0.2

Discussions at the 5th RISC-V workshop indicated a desire to drop this packed-SIMD proposal for floating-point registers in favor of standardizing on the V extension for large floating-point SIMD operations. However, there was interest in packed-SIMD fixed-point operations for use in the integer registers of small RISC-V implementations. A task group is working to define the new P extension.
