Correct, GVN is not a "definitive" user of LoopInfo, thus running GVN and critical edge splitting will remove the loop annotations, however that behaviour is at least well defined. In contrast calling BreakCriticalEdges from another "non LoopInfo user pass" might result in invalid loop annotations in your patch.
If we never want to remove metadata information we shouldn't add LoopInfo to the passes GVN needs, but to the passes BreakCriticalEdges needs. That way we can always rely on LoopInfo to "do the right thing" in BreakCriticalEdges without the need to remove annotations for the lack of information.
