This mechanism very likely results in a bug if the 2 insns are not originally
in the same BB, like in the case at hand.  So, assuming they are originally in
the same BB and carry the same REG_EQUAL note, the constant will be propagated
in both insns.

That's too aggressive in the general case, no need to remove a REG_EQUAL note
pointing to a constant if the SRC is also function_invariant_p.  An acceptable
compromise could be to remove the note only if its content is also not itself
