codeGen: Don't discard live case binders in unsafeEqualityProof logic

Previously CoreToStg would unconditionally discard cases of the form:

    case unsafeEqualityProof of wild { _ -> rhs }

and rather replace the whole thing with `rhs`. However, in some cases
(see #18227) the case binder is still live, resulting in unbound
occurrences in `rhs`. Fix this by only discarding the case if the case
binder is dead.

Fixes #18227.
