RFR(XS) 8032894: Remove dead code in Pressure::lower

Hi all,

When building the physical IFG, we step backwards in each block, and 
remove things that are defined from the LIVE_OUT, (and lower the current 
pressure) and add input to the LIVE_OUT (and raising the current 
pressure). Each time we lower or raise the current pressure, we check if 
it's bigger than the current maximum pressure, known as final_pressure. 
However the final_pressure can never increase when removing definitions 
(i.e. lower the current pressure) so the check for a new final_pressure 
in Pressure::lower is useless.
