[CodeGen] Increase applicability of ffine-grained-bitfield-accesses for targets with limited native integer widths

As pointed out in PR45708, -ffine-grained-bitfield-accesses doesn't
trigger in all cases you think it might for RISC-V. The logic in
CGRecordLowering::accumulateBitFields checks OffsetInRecord is a legal
integer according to the datalayout. RISC targets will typically only
have the native width as a legal integer type so this check will fail
for OffsetInRecord of 8 or 16 when you would expect the transformation
is still worthwhile.

This patch changes the logic to check for an OffsetInRecord of a at
least 1 byte, that fits in a legal integer, and is a power of 2. We
would prefer to query whether native load/store operations are
available, but I don't believe that is possible.
