[SROA] Take advantage of separate alignments for memcpy source and destination

Description

[SROA] Take advantage of separate alignments for memcpy source and destination

Summary:
This change is part of step five in the series of changes to remove alignment argument from
memcpy/memmove/memset in favour of alignment attributes. In particular, this changes the
SROA pass to cease using the old getAlignment() & setAlignment() APIs of MemoryIntrinsic in
favour of getting source & dest specific alignments through the new API. This allows us
to enhance visitMemTransferInst to be more aggressive setting the alignment in memcpy
calls that it creates, as well as to only change the alignment of a memcpy/memmove
argument that it replaces.

Steps:
Step 1) Remove alignment parameter and create alignment parameter attributes for
memcpy/memmove/memset. ( rL322965, rC322964, rL322963 )
Step 2) Expand the IRBuilder API to allow creation of memcpy/memmove with differing
source and dest alignments. ( rL323597 )
Step 3) Update Clang to use the new IRBuilder API. ( rC323617 )
Step 4) Update Polly to use the new IRBuilder API. ( rL323618 )
Step 5) Update LLVM passes that create memcpy/memmove calls to use the new IRBuilder API,
and those that use use MemIntrinsicInst::[get|set]Alignment() to use [get|set]DestAlignment()
and [get|set]SourceAlignment() instead. ( rL323886, rL323891, rL324148, rL324273, rL324278,
rL324384, rL324395, rL324402, rL324626, rL324642, rL324653, rL324654, rL324773, rL324774,
rL324781, rL324784, rL324955, rL324960, rL325816 )
Step 6) Remove the single-alignment IRBuilder API for memcpy/memmove, and the
MemIntrinsicInst::[get|set]Alignment() methods.
