Merge memtag instructions with adjacent stack slots.

Detect a run of memory tagging instructions for adjacent stack frame slots,
and replace them with a shorter instruction sequence

  • replace STG + STG with ST2G
  • replace STGloop + STGloop with STGloop

This code needs to run when stack slot offsets are already known, but before
FrameIndex operands in STG instructions are eliminated; that's the
reason for the new hook in PrologueEpilogue.

This change modifies STGloop and STZGloop pseudos to take the size as an
immediate integer operand, and adds _untied variants of those pseudos
that are allowed to take the base address as a FI operand. This is needed to
simplify recognizing an STGloop instruction as operating on a stack slot

This improves memtag code size by ~0.25%, and it looks like an additional ~0.1%
is possible by rearranging the stack frame such that consecutive STG
instructions reference adjacent slots (patch pending).
