I believe that providing additional intrinsics that would directly produce
the ISD::ADDC/ISD::SUBC nodes would provide the additional advantage of
being able to directly produce these nodes for code that doesn't have
anything to do with multiprecision addition/subtraction. I am not aware of
any way currently available to produce IR that will generate these nodes
