[IR] allow fast-math-flags on select of FP values

This is a minimal start to correcting a problem most directly discussed in PR38086:

We have been hacking around a limitation for FP select patterns by using the
fast-math-flags on the condition of the select rather than the select itself.
This patch just allows FMF to appear with the 'select' opcode. No changes are
needed to "FPMathOperator" because it already includes select-of-FP because
that definition is based on the (return) value type.

Once we have this ability, we can start correcting and adding IR transforms
to use the FMF on a 'select' instruction. The instcombine and vectorizer test
diffs only show that the IRBuilder change is behaving as expected by applying
an FMF guard value to 'select'.

For reference:
rL241901 - allowed FMF with fcmp
rL255555 - allowed FMF with FP calls
