Expand description

This function converts an interpreter value into a MIR constant.

The for_diagnostics flag turns the usual rules for returning ConstValue::Scalar into a best-effort attempt. This is not okay for use in const-eval sine it breaks invariants rustc relies on, but it is okay for diagnostics which will just give up gracefully when they encounter an Indirect they cannot handle.
