[DAGCombiner] tighten fast-math constraints for fma fold

fadd (fma A, B, (fmul C, D)), E --> fma A, B, (fma C, D, E)

This is only allowed when "reassoc" is present on the fadd.

As discussed in D80801, this transform goes beyond
what is allowed by "contract" FMF (-ffp-contract=fast).
That is because we are fusing the trailing add of 'E' with a
multiply, but without "reassoc", the code mandates that the
products A*B and C*D are added together before adding in 'E'.

I've added this example to the LangRef to try to clarify the
meaning of "contract". If that seems reasonable, we should
probably do something similar for the clang docs because
there does not appear to be any formal spec for the behavior
of -ffp-contract=fast.
