[MachineCopyPropagation] Extend pass to do COPY source forwarding

This change extends MachineCopyPropagation to do COPY source forwarding.

This change also extends the MachineCopyPropagation pass to be able to
be run during register allocation, after physical registers have been
assigned, but before the virtual registers have been re-written, which
allows it to remove virtual register COPY LiveIntervals that become dead
through the forwarding of all of their uses.
