[InstCombine] allow shl+mul combos with shuffle (select) fold (PR37806)

Description

[InstCombine] allow shl+mul combos with shuffle (select) fold (PR37806)

This is an enhancement to D48401 that was discussed in:
https://bugs.llvm.org/show_bug.cgi?id=37806

We can convert a shift-left-by-constant into a multiply (we canonicalize IR in the other
direction because that's generally better of course). This allows us to remove the shuffle
as we do in the regular opcodes-are-the-same cases.

This requires a small hack to make sure we don't introduce any extra poison:

Other examples of opcodes where this would work are add+sub and fadd+fsub, but we already
canonicalize those subs into adds, so there's nothing to do for those cases AFAICT. There
are planned enhancements for opcode transforms such or -> add.

Note that there's a different fold needed if we've already managed to simplify away a binop
as seen in the test based on PR37806, but we manage to get that one case here because this
fold is positioned above the demanded elements fold currently.
