cmd/compile: base PPC64 trunc rules on final type, not op type

Whether a truncation should become a MOVWreg or a MOVWZreg doesn't
depend on the type of the operand, it depends on the type of the final
result.  If the final result is unsigned, we can use MOVWZreg.  If the
final result is signed, we can use MOVWreg.  Checking the type of the
operand does the wrong thing if truncating an unsigned value to a
signed value, or vice-versa.

Fixes #29943
