Description

[IR] Allow fast math flags on calls with floating point array type.

Summary:
This extends the rules for when a call instruction is deemed to be an
FPMathOperator, which is based on the type of the call (i.e. the return
type of the function being called). Previously we only allowed
floating-point and vector-of-floating-point types. Now we also allow
arrays (nested to any depth) of floating-point and
vector-of-floating-point types.

This was motivated by llpc, the pipeline compiler for AMD GPUs
(https://github.com/GPUOpen-Drivers/llpc). llpc has many math library
functions that operate on vectors, typically represented as <4 x float>,
and some that operate on matrices, typically represented as
[4 x <4 x float>], and it's useful to be able to decorate calls to all
of them with fast math flags.
