[PPC] Use subfic instruction for subtract from immediate

Authored by inouehrs on Feb 1 2017, 3:37 AM.


  • generate subfic instruction for subtracting a value in a GPR from a 16-bit immediate (e.g. x = 64 - y); currently LLVM generates two instructions (load immediate + subtract) for this purpose
  • add a unit test to confirm that subfic is used if possible
