cmd/compile: fix rules regression with shifts on PPC64

Some rules for PPC64 were checking for a case
where a shift followed by an 'and' of a mask could
be lowered, depending on the format of the mask. The
function to verify if the mask was valid for this purpose
was not checking if the mask was 0 which we don't want to
allow. This case can happen if previous optimizations
resulted in that mask value.

This fixes isPPC64ValidShiftMask to check for a mask of 0 and return

This also adds a codegen testcase to verify it doesn't try to
match the rules in the future.

Fixes #42610
