Fix handling of $_ in blocks to if/unless mods

The program:

    for 1..3 { { say $_; last } if $_ == 2 }

Recently started to output `True` instead of `2`. This bissected to the
recent optimizer change to the immediate block inlining. However, even
disabling the optimizer still showed up the bug. In fact, a bissect with
the optimizer disabled revealed that the optimizer had a bug, fixed in
commit 541a4f1, that caused it to do immediate inlining of blocks that
it shouldn't have before. This optimizer bug hid another bug; a bissect
with the optimizer disabled led to a fix from around a year ago, which
in turn caused `{ say $_ } if $_ == 2` to be compiled as if it were
`if $_ == 2 -> $_ { say $_ }`.

This change makes sure that we compile the construct correctly, thus
fixing the issue that the optimizer bug had hidden.
