[LegalizeVectorTypes] Allow single loads and stores for more short vectors

Description

[LegalizeVectorTypes] Allow single loads and stores for more short vectors

When lowering a load or store for TypeWidenVector, the type legalizer
would use a single load or store if the associated integer type was legal
or promoted. E.g. it loads a v4i8 as an i32 if i32 is legal/promotable.
(See https://reviews.llvm.org/rL236528 for reference.)

This applies that behaviour to vector types. If the vector type is
TypePromoteInteger, the element type is going to be TypePromoteInteger
as well, which will lead to have a single promoting load rather than N
individual promoting loads. For instance, if we have a v3i1, we would
now have a load of v4i1 instead of 3 loads of i1.
