Description

[PPC] Move the combine "a << (b % (sizeof(a) * 8)) -> (PPCshl a, b)" to the backend. NFC.

Summary:
Eli pointed out that it's unsafe to combine the shifts to ISD::SHL etc.,
because those are not defined for b > sizeof(a) * 8, even after some of
the combiners run.

However, PPCISD::SHL defines that behavior (as the instructions themselves).
Move the combination to the backend.

The tests in shift_mask.ll still pass.
