IIn https://reviews.llvm.org/D46760#1123713, Sanjay Patel suggests transforming
lshr+shl into mask(and)+shl, which is not only a canonicalization, but
would also sidestep the problem which D46760 is trying to fix.

This canonicalization is already being done for the non-constants,
or equal constants, but not unequal constants.

The commit that introduced that restriction: https://reviews.llvm.org/rL155136
suggests that said transform negatively impacts backend (rotate instruction),
and SCEV.
The backend part will likely be resolved in https://reviews.llvm.org/D47681 or
