Allow early sets of SSE hard registers from standard_sse_constant_p.
My previous patch, which was intended to reduce the differences seen by
the combination of -march=cascadelake and -m32, has additionally found
some more instances where this combination behaves differently to regular
x86_64-pc-linux-gnu. The middle-end always, and backends usually, use
emit_move_insn to emit/expand move instructions allowing the backend
control over placing things in constant pools, adding REG_EQUAL notes,
and so on. Several of the AVX512 built-in expanders bypass this logic,
and instead generate moves directly using emit_insn(gen_rtx_SET (dst,src)).
For example, i386-expand.c line 12004 contains:
for (i = 0; i < 8; i++)
emit_insn (gen_rtx_SET (xmm_regs[i], const0_rtx));
I suspect that in this case, loading of standard_sse_constant_p, my
change to require loading of likely spilled hard registers via a
pseudo is perhaps overly strict, so this patch/fix reallows these
immediate constants values to be loaded directly prior to reload.

* config/i386/i386.c (ix86_hardreg_mov_ok): For vector modes,
allow standard_sse_constant_p immediate constants.
