cmm/CBE: Collapse blocks equivalent up to alpha renaming of local registers

As noted in #14226, the common block elimination pass currently
implements an extremely strict equivalence relation, demanding that two
blocks are equivalent including the names of their local registers. This
is quite restrictive and severely hampers the effectiveness of the pass.

Here we allow the CBE pass to collapse blocks which are equivalent up to
alpha renaming of locally-bound local registers. This is completely safe
and catches many more duplicate blocks.
