[InstSimplify] fold extracting from std::pair (1/2)

This patch intends to enable jump threading when a method whose return type is std::pair<int, bool> or std::pair<bool, int> is inlined.
For example, jump threading does not happen for the if statement in func.

std::pair<int, bool> callee(int v) {

int a = dummy(v);
if (a) return std::make_pair(dummy(v), true);
else return std::make_pair(v, v < 0);


int func(int v) {

std::pair<int, bool> rc = callee(v);
if (rc.second) {
  // do something

SROA executed before the method inlining replaces std::pair by i64 without splitting in both callee and func since at this point no access to the individual fields is seen to SROA.
After inlining, jump threading fails to identify that the incoming value is a constant due to additional instructions (like or, and, trunc).

This series of patch add patterns in InstructionSimplify to fold extraction of members of std::pair. To help jump threading, actually we need to optimize the code sequence spanning multiple BBs.
These patches does not handle phi by itself, but these additional patterns help NewGVN pass, which calls instsimplify to check opportunities for simplifying instructions over phi, apply phi-of-ops optimization to result in successful jump threading.
SimplifyDemandedBits in InstCombine, can do more general optimization but this patch aims to provide opportunities for other optimizers by supporting a simple but common case in InstSimplify.

This first patch in the series handles code sequences that merges two values using shl and or and then extracts one value using lshr.
