Drop REG_CROSSING_JUMP when converting to a conditional return

While experimenting with a patch to use conditional returns, I hit a case
where a conditional jump between hot and cold sections was being converted
into a conditional return.  The new jump still had the REG_CROSSING_JUMP
and later passes were confused by the combination of that and a return

The jump is now returning directly from the current section rather than
crossing sections within the function, so I think we should just drop
the note.

Tested on s390x-linux-gnu with some local patches.  OK to install?


	* jump.c (redirect_jump_2): Remove REG_CROSSING_JUMP notes when
	converting a conditional jump into a conditional return.
