Description

[llvm-mca][docs] Add instruction flow documentation. NFC.

Summary:
This patch mostly copies the existing Instruction Flow, and stage descriptions
from the mca README. I made a few text tweaks, but no semantic changes,
and made reference to the "default pipeline." I also removed the internals
references (e.g., reference to class names and header files). I did leave the
LSUnit name around, but only as an abbreviated word for the load-store unit.
