[TTI] Add TargetCostKind argument to getUserCost

There are several different types of cost that TTI tries to provide
explicit information for: throughput, latency, code size along with
a vague 'intersection of code-size cost and execution cost'.

The vectorizer is a keen user of RecipThroughput and there's at least
'getInstructionThroughput' and 'getArithmeticInstrCost' designed to
help with this cost. The latency cost has a single use and a single
implementation. The intersection cost appears to cover most of the
rest of the API.

getUserCost is explicitly called from within TTI when the user has
been explicit in wanting the code size (also only one use) as well
as a few passes which are concerned with a mixture of size and/or
a relative cost. In many cases these costs are closely related, such
as when multiple instructions are required, but one evident diverging
cost in this function is for div/rem.

This patch adds an argument so that the cost required is explicit,
so that we can make the important distinction when necessary.
