  Log Message:
  [RISCV] Avoid redundant branch-to-branch when expanding cmpxchg

If the success value of a cmpxchg is used in a branch, the expanded
cmpxchg sequence ends up with a redundant branch-to-branch (as the
backend atomics expansion happens as late as possible, passes to
optimise such cases have already run). This patch identifies this case
and avoid it when expanding the cmpxchg.

Note that a similar optimisation is possible for a BEQ on the cmpxchg
success value. As it's hard to imagine a case where real-world code may
do that, this patch doens't handle that case.
