Proposal: add Data.Data instances for Foreign.C.Types

I recently was wanting to use SYB for an AST datatype which includes
constants like CDouble/CFloat.  Currently Data.Data exports Int8...Int64
and Word instances, but no instances for Foreign.C.Types:

Is there any reason these instances should not be exported by Data.Data?
 The proposal here is simply to add them.  It's  just a matter of
copy-pasting the existing instances and I can provide the patch.
