[X86] Teach the DAGCombiner how to fold a OR of two shufflevector nodes.

This patch teaches the DAGCombiner how to fold a binary OR between two
shufflevector into a single shuffle vector when possible.

The rules are:

  1. fold (or (shuf A, V_0, MA), (shuf B, V_0, MB)) -> (shuf A, B, Mask1)
  2. fold (or (shuf A, V_0, MA), (shuf B, V_0, MB)) -> (shuf B, A, Mask2)

The DAGCombiner can take advantage of the fact that OR is commutative and
compute two possible shuffle masks (Mask1 and Mask2) for the resulting
shuffle node.

Before folding a dag according to either rule 1 or 2, DAGCombiner verifies
that the resulting shuffle mask is legal for the target.
DAGCombiner would firstly try to fold according to 1.; If not possible
then it will try to fold according to 2.
If both Mask1 and Mask2 are illegal then we conservatively don't fold
the OR instruction.
