[Utils] Skip RemoveRedundantDbgInstrs in MergeBlockIntoPredecessor (PR47746)

This patch changes MergeBlockIntoPredecessor to skip the call to
RemoveRedundantDbgInstrs, in effect partially reverting D71480 due to
some compile-time issues spotted in LoopUnroll and SimplifyCFG.

The call to RemoveRedundantDbgInstrs appears to have changed the
worst-case behavior of the merging utility. Loosely speaking, it seems
to have gone from O(#phis) to O(#insts).

It might not be possible to mitigate this by scanning a block to
determine whether there are any debug intrinsics to remove, since such a
scan costs O(#insts).

So: skip the call to RemoveRedundantDbgInstrs. There's surprisingly
little fallout from this, and most of it can be addressed by doing
RemoveRedundantDbgInstrs later. The exception is (the block-local
version of) SimplifyCFG, where it might just be too expensive to call
