[RISCV] Prevent store combining from infinitely looping

RVV code generation does not successfully custom-lower BUILD_VECTOR in all
cases. When it resorts to default expansion it may, on occasion, be expanded to
scalar stores through the stack. Unfortunately these stores may then be picked
up by the post-legalization DAGCombiner which merges them again. The merged
store uses a BUILD_VECTOR which is then expanded, and so on.

This patch addresses the issue by overriding the mergeStoresAfterLegalization
hook. A lack of granularity in this method (being passed the scalar type) means
we opt out in almost all cases when RVV fixed-length vector support is enabled.
The only exception to this rule are mask vectors, which are always either
custom-lowered or are expanded to a load from a constant pool.
