[master bafa9f0] remove CompLDSTOpSubset, replace with just data_len.

done.  quite straightforward (very quick) as there is not much information
needed to be passed over.

whilst LoadStoreInterface has x_mask (byte-enable lines) and expects data
to be wishbone-bus-aligned, i'm recommending that we keep PortInterface
binary-encoded and process it on-demand through LenExpand to create the
x_mask (byte-enable lines).

the reason is that it's a lot more extra wires to pass round a 16-bit expanded
bit-mask and we have a laarge number of PortInterfaces to route.
