[TLI][PowerPC] Introduce TLI query to check if MULH is cheaper than MUL + SHIFT

Authored by amyk on Apr 15 2020, 9:47 PM.



This patch introduces a TargetLowering query, isMulhCheaperThanMulShift.

Currently in DAG Combine, it will transform mulhs/mulhu into a
wider multiply and a shift if the wide multiply is legal.

This TLI function is implemented on 64-bit PowerPC, as it is more desirable to
have multiply-high over multiply + shift for words and doublewords. Having
multiply-high can also aid in further transformations that can be done.

LGTM. However, give this patch a couple of days in case others in the community would like to chime in.

If we add X86/SSE support we might need a IsSigned flag but unless PPC have a use case right now I don't think this needs to be added yet.

Thanks for having a look. The current use case is that the transformation in actually relies on this patch.
