Description

[InstCombine] move vector select ahead of select-shuffle

select Cond, (shuf_sel X, Y), X --> shuf_sel X, (select Cond, Y, X)

A select of a select-shuffle ("blend" in x86 lingo) can be reversed
so that the select is done first.
This is a more limited version of what I was trying in D80658,
but it enables existing demanded bits transforms to catch some of the
motivating cases. The tricky bit in that seems to be that by moving
the shuffle later, we can always guarantee that poison is correctly
inhibited by the shuffle mask in the final value.
