Thumb1 load/store optimizer: Improve code to materialize new base register.

Description

Thumb1 load/store optimizer: Improve code to materialize new base register.

There are two add-immediate instructions in Thumb1: tADDi8 and tADDi3. Only
the latter supports using different source and destination registers, so
whenever we materialize a new base register (at a certain offset) we'd do
so by moving the base register value to the new register and then adding in
place. This patch changes the code to use a single tADDi3 if the offset is
small enough to fit in 3 bits.
