           Summary: loop unswitch never unswitches any loops
           Product: new-bugs

            Status: NEW
          Severity: normal

Take even the most trivial loop to unswitch:
int a(int x, int y) {
  for (unsigned i = 0; i < y; i++) {
    if (x) {
  }return 0;

Loop unswitch somehow can't manage to unswitch it.

The cause here is r58631; it changed FindLIVLoopCondition so that it always
returns null, which means the unswitcher can never find any conditions to
unswitch on.  I somehow doubt that was the intention, but I can't figure out
what it was trying to do.
