Split off from Bug #26183.

With the scheduler models maturing we should be investigating ways to better
select between MC optimizations based on scheduler characteristics, register
pressure etc.

Bug #26183 mentioned several X86 slow/fast features that could be replaced with
scheduler costings:


Some of these affect (older) CPUs that currently don't have a accurate
scheduler models - taking numbers from Agner is probably enough to be useful?

Additionally, the use of when to combine multiple shuffles to a single variable
shuffle mask keeps coming up. As well as the actual instruction cost, the cost
of loading the mask needs to be accurately modelled: register pressure? can it
be hoisted? etc.
