[PeepholeOptimizer] Advanced rewriting of copies to avoid cross register banks

Description

[PeepholeOptimizer] Advanced rewriting of copies to avoid cross register banks
copies.

This patch extends the peephole optimization introduced in r190713 to produce
register-coalescer friendly copies when possible.

This extension taught the existing cross-bank copy optimization how to deal
with the instructions that generate cross-bank copies, i.e., insert_subreg,
extract_subreg, reg_sequence, and subreg_to_reg.
E.g.
b = insert_subreg e, A, sub0 <-- cross-bank copy
...
C = copy b.sub0 <-- cross-bank copy

Would produce the following code:
b = insert_subreg e, A, sub0 <-- cross-bank copy
...
C = copy A <-- same-bank copy

This patch also introduces a new helper class for that: ValueTracker.
This class implements the logic to look through the copy related instructions
and get the related source.

For now, the advanced rewriting is disabled by default as we are lacking the
semantic on target specific instructions to catch the motivating examples.
