Description

[DAGCombiner] (REAPPLIED) Add vector demanded elements support to computeKnownBits

Currently computeKnownBits returns the common known zero/one bits for all elements of vector data, when we may only be interested in one/some of the elements.

This patch adds a DemandedElts argument that allows us to specify the elements we actually care about. The original computeKnownBits implementation calls with a DemandedElts demanding all elements to match current behaviour. Scalar types set this to 1.

The approach was found to be easier than trying to add a per-element known bits solution, for a similar usefulness given the combines where computeKnownBits is typically used.

I've only added support for a few opcodes so far (the ones that have proven straightforward to test), all others will default to demanding all elements but can be updated in due course.

DemandedElts support could similarly be added to computeKnownBitsForTargetNode in a future commit.

This looked like this had caused compile time regressions on some buildbots (and was reverted in rL285381), but appears to have just been a harmless bystander!
