Description

[RISCV] Add initial support for converting fixed vectors to scalable vectors during lowering to use RVV instructions.

This is an alternative to D95563.

This is modeled after a similar feature for AArch64's SVE that uses
predicated scalable vector instructions.a

Rather than use predication, this patch uses an explicit VL operand.
I've limited it to always use LMUL=1 for now, but we can improve this
in the future.

This requires a bunch of new ISD opcodes to carry the VL operand.
I think we can probably lower intrinsics to these ISD opcodes to
cut down on the size of the isel table. Which is why I've added
patterns for all integer/float types and not just LMUL=1.

I'm only testing one vector width right now, but the width is
programmable via the command line.
