Fix -dynamic-too with wired-in modules (#19264)

Sylvain Henry requested to merge hsyl20/ghc:hsyl20/dynamictoo/fix into master

Commit message

See T19264 for a tricky corner case when explicitly importing
GHC.Num.BigNat and another module. With -dynamic-too, the FinderCache
contains paths for non-dynamic interfaces so they must be loaded first,
which is usually the case, except for some interfaces loaded in the
backend (e.g. in CorePrep).

So we must run the backend for the non-dynamic way first for
-dynamic-too to work as it is but I broke this invariant in
c85f4928d4dbb2eb2cf906d08bfe7620d6f04ca5 by mistakenly making the
backend run for the dynamic way first.
