[Attributor][NFC] Encode IRPositions in the bits of a single pointer

This reduces memory consumption for IRPositions by eliminating the
vtable pointer and the KindOrArgNo integer. Since each abstract
attribute has an associated IRPosition, the 12-16 bytes we save add up

No functional change is intended.

Single run of the Attributor module and then CGSCC pass (oldPM)
for SPASS/clause.c (~10k LLVM-IR loc):


calls to allocation functions: 469545 (260135/s)
temporary memory allocations: 77137 (42735/s)
peak heap memory consumption: 30.50MB
peak RSS (including heaptrack overhead): 119.50MB
total memory leaked: 269.07KB


calls to allocation functions: 468999 (274108/s)
temporary memory allocations: 77002 (45004/s)

total memory leaked: 269.07KB


calls to allocation functions: -546 (5808/s)
