Apicula IO primitives

Add additional IO primitives to libre Gowin FPGA tools

Apicula is a project that aims to provide open source tools to work with Gowin FPGAs. (FPGAs are repurposable chips used in many everyday and specialist electronic products for everything from tying systems together to highly specialized algorithm accelerators). In recent years open source FPGA tools have made great strides to break the vendor lock-in of commercial FPGA tools. But to completely break vendor lock-in a variety of mature toolchains are needed. We have reached a point of general usability, and with this grant Apicula aims to make another large leap forward, improving feature parity, documentation, and support for more advanced and specialized Gowin devices.
