intel/fs: Improve discard_if code generation

Previously we would blindly emit an sequence like:

        mov(1)          f0.1<1>UW       g1.14<0,1,0>UW
        ...
        cmp.l.f0(16)    g7<1>F          g5<8,8,1>F      0x41700000F  /* 15F */
(+f0.1) cmp.z.f0.1(16)  null<1>D        g7<8,8,1>D      0D

The first move sets the flags based on the initial execution mask.
Later discard sequences contain a predicated compare that can only
remove more SIMD channels.  Often times the only user of the result from
the first compare is the second compare.  Instead, generate a sequence
like

        mov(1)          f0.1<1>UW       g1.14<0,1,0>UW
        ...
        cmp.l.f0(16)    g7<1>F          g5<8,8,1>F      0x41700000F  /* 15F */
(+f0.1) cmp.ge.f0.1(8)  null<1>F        g5<8,8,1>F      0x41700000F  /* 15F */

If the results stored in g7 and f0.0 are not used, the comparison will
be eliminated.  This removes an instruction and potentially reduces
register pressure.

v2: Major re-write of the commit message (including fixing the assembly
code).  Suggested by Matt.
