Allow isDereferenceablePointer to look through some bitcasts

Description

Allow isDereferenceablePointer to look through some bitcasts

isDereferenceablePointer should not give up upon encountering any bitcast. If
we're casting from a pointer to a larger type to a pointer to a small type, we
can continue by examining the bitcast's operand. This missing capability
was noted in a comment in the function.

In order for this to work, isDereferenceablePointer now takes an optional
DataLayout pointer (essentially all callers already had such a pointer
available). Most code uses isDereferenceablePointer though
isSafeToSpeculativelyExecute (which already took an optional DataLayout
pointer), and to enable the LICM test case, LICM needs to actually provide its DL
pointer to isSafeToSpeculativelyExecute (which it was not doing previously).
