bpf, verifier: Remove redundant var_off.value ops in scalar known reg cases

In BPF_AND and BPF_OR alu cases we have this pattern when the src and dst
tnum is a constant.

 1 dst_reg->var_off = tnum_[op](dst_reg->var_off, src_reg.var_off)
 2 scalar32_min_max_[op]
 3       if (known) return
 4 scalar_min_max_[op]
 5       if (known)
 6          __mark_reg_known(dst_reg,
                   dst_reg->var_off.value [op] src_reg.var_off.value)

The result is in 1 we calculate the var_off value and store it in the
dst_reg. Then in 6 we duplicate this logic doing the op again on the

The duplication comes from the the tnum_[op] handlers because they have
already done the value calcuation. For example this is tnum_and().

 struct tnum tnum_and(struct tnum a, struct tnum b)
	u64 alpha, beta, v;

	alpha = a.value | a.mask;
	beta = b.value | b.mask;
	v = a.value & b.value;
	return TNUM(v, alpha & beta & ~v);

So lets remove the redundant op calculation. Its confusing for readers
and unnecessary. Its also not harmful because those ops have the
property, r1 & r1 = r1 and r1 | r1 = r1.
