nir: Replace an odd comparison involving fmin of -b2f

I noticed the fge version while looking at a shader for an unrelated
reason.  The feq version prevents a regression in a later change that
performs strength reduction of some compares.

Broadwell and Skylake had similar results. (Skylake shown)
