checkpatch: fix $Float creation of match variables

Commit 74349bc ("checkpatch: add support for floating point
constants") added an unnecessary match variable that caused tests that
used a $Constant or $LvalOrFunc to have one too many matches.

This causes problems with usleep_range, min/max and other extended

Avoid using match variables in $Float.
Avoid using match variables in $Assignment too.
