When replacing an inline type buffer allocation by a dominating allocation, we are removing stores and re-link all
users of the dominated allocation to the dominating one (see InlineTypeNode::replace_allocation). Now we forgot to also
remove GC barriers for initializing stores to the dominated allocation, which causes several issues because these are
then re-linked to the dominated allocation as well while the corresponding stores were removed. The fix is to simply
remove these barriers as well via BarrierSet::eliminate_gc_barrier.
