In a follow up change, I will use this to be more precise with regards to the semantics of volatile instructions encountered in the scan of a basic block.

By providing more information to the helper routine, we allow some optimizations to kick in that weren't previously able to (when called from this code path.) In particular, we see that treatment of !invariant.load becomes more precise. In theory, we might see a difference with an ordered/atomic instruction as well, but I'm having a hard time actually finding a test case which shows that.

Arguably, these might call for being submitted separately. I don't have a strong preference either way and will defer to the reviewers.
