[GlobalISel][AArch64] Contract trivial same-size cross-bank copies into G_STOREs

Description

[GlobalISel][AArch64] Contract trivial same-size cross-bank copies into G_STOREs

Sometimes, you can end up with cross-bank copies between same-sized GPRs and
FPRs, which feed into G_STOREs. When these copies feed only into stores, they
aren't necessary; we can just store using the original register bank.

This provides some minor code size savings for some floating point SPEC
benchmarks. (Around 0.2% for 453.povray and 450.soplex)

This issue doesn't seem to show up due to regbankselect or anything similar. So,
this patch introduces an early select function, contractCrossBankCopyIntoStore
which performs the contraction when possible. The selector then continues
normally and selects the correct store opcode, eliminating needless copies
along the way.
