MDEV-9701: CREATE VIEW with GROUP BY or ORDER BY and constant produces invalid definition

Fixed printing integer constant in the ORDER clause (MySQL solution)
Removed workaround for double resolving counter in the ORDER.

how can this happen?
we merge view and so its ORDER BY first we resolve it in  view then in
outer query. It actually works (I am not sure if I should include also
following test:

create table t1 (a int, b int);
insert into t1 values (1,2), (2,1);
create view v1 as select a, b from t1 order by 1;
select b,a from v1;
b    a
2    1
1    2
Did it work before this your change? If yes - how?
It worked because of IF which avoid printing order number in case of printing for VIEW (expression was printed) so not 1 but a (or even constant in the case of the bug)

Actually I can make above even more efficient, just exit in case if
resolving already done. Try it?
If you do - do it in a separate commit, please

+    else
+      count= (uint) order_item->val_int();

why is it needed?
For PS and exactly for PS  with "ORDER BY ?" to make new resolving for
Why would one need to redo it? The number will always resolve to the
same Item, won't it? One can safely do it only once, it seems.
According to the test case we have in case of integer parameter 'ORDER BY ?' interpret as "by which column we will order", so result order differs depends on execution parameter.
