Summary

It was noted on the list that this method is unused. So, this patch
removes it.

Fix Scalar::Promote for most integer types

This fixes promotion of most integer types (128- and 256-bit types are
handled in a subsequent patch) to floating-point types. Previously
promotion was done bitwise, where value preservation is correct.

Fix Scalar::Promote for 128- and 256-bit integer types

This patch fixes the behavior of Scalar::Promote when trying to
perform a binary operation involving a 128- or 256-bit integer type
and a floating-point type. Now, the integer is cast to the floating
point type for the operation.

Very nice. Thanks for doing this. Someone a while back had converted Scalar to use APInt and APFloat and never got around to all of these details.
