[AArch64] Combine callee-save and local stack SP adjustment instructions.

Description

[AArch64] Combine callee-save and local stack SP adjustment instructions.

Summary:
If a function needs to allocate both callee-save stack memory and local
stack memory, we currently decrement/increment the SP in two steps:
first for the callee-save area, and then for the local stack area. This
changes the code to allocate them both at once at the very beginning/end
of the function. This has two benefits:

  1. there is one fewer sub/add micro-op in the prologue/epilogue
  1. the stack adjustment instructions act as a scheduling barrier, so

moving them to the very beginning/end of the function increases post-RA
scheduler's ability to move instructions (that only depend on argument
registers) before any of the callee-save stores

This change can cause an increase in instructions if the original local
stack SP decrement could be folded into the first store to the stack.
This occurs when the first local stack store is to stack offset 0. In
this case we are trading off one more sub instruction for one fewer sub
micro-op (along with benefits (2) and (3) above).
