cmd/compile: optimize bits.OnesCount(x) == 1 #38547
It'd be nice for the compiler to be able to optimize
This is a bit tricky, because by the time we get to the rewrite rules, there's already a branch to check cpu feature availability.
If we figure this out, there might be other math/bits function result comparisons we want to optimize.
Implementation ideas welcome.

This is the second attempt. The first attempt was CL 229127, which got rolled back by CL 229177, because it caused an infinite loop during compilation on some platforms. I didn't notice that the trybots hadn't completed when I submitted; mea culpa. The bug was that we were checking x&(x-1)==0, which is also true of 0, which does not have exactly one bit set. This caused an infinite rewrite rule loop.
