  [mlir][Vector] Add a rewrite pattern for better low-precision ext(bit… (#66648)

…cast) expansion

This revision adds a rewrite for sequences of vector `ext(bitcast)` to
use a more efficient sequence of vector operations comprising `shuffle`
and `bitwise` ops.

Such patterns appear naturally when writing quantization /
dequantization functionality with the vector dialect.

The rewrite performs a simple enumeration of each of the bits in the
result vector and determines its provenance in the source vector. The
enumeration is used to generate the proper sequence of `shuffle`,
`andi`, `ori` with shifts`.

The rewrite currently only applies to 1-D non-scalable vectors and bails
out if the final vector element type is not a multiple of 8. This is a
failsafe heuristic determined empirically: if the resulting type is not
an even number of bytes, further complexities arise that are not
improved by this pattern: the heavy lifting still needs to be done by
