Instead of just running a couple of the possible optimisations in one
single iteration, it now runs the whole loop again after lowering the
load payloads. According to shader-db this gives:

total instructions in shared programs: 6493365 -> 6493289 (-0.00%)
instructions in affected programs:     1696 -> 1620 (-4.48%)
total loops in shared programs:        2237 -> 2237 (0.00%)
helped:                                20
HURT:                                  0

Most of the shaders just benefit from running the register coalesce
pass multiple times. However the following two additionally benefit
from an extra pass of opt_saturate_propagation which causes a bunch of
further optimisations:

steam-metro-last-light-1719.shader_test
steam-metro-last-light-836.shader_test

The optimisations that get run after lowering the load payloads are:

04-14-register_coalesce
04-17-compact_virtual_grfs
05-12-opt_saturate_propagation
06-02-opt_algebraic
06-04-opt_copy_propagate
06-07-dead_code_eliminate
06-12-opt_saturate_propagation
06-14-register_coalesce
06-17-compact_virtual_grfs
07-18-opt_combine_constants

In the first shader this drops four instructions.
