real(16) and complex(16)

This is to request that PGI provide support for Fortran quad precision. In the past, such requests have received the response “no hardware is available”. Today, we have the Power9 family that does support true 128 bit operations. PGI compilers are supported on Power9 with real(8)/complex(8). It would appear that implementing this request should be straight forward and a natural feature-extension.
