Hi atrick, jingyue,

This patch de-pessimizes the calculation of loop trip counts in ScalarEvolution in the presence of multiple exits.  Previously all loops exits had to have identical counts for a loop trip count to be considered computable.  This pessimization was implemented by calling getBackedgeTakenCount(L) rather than getExitCount(L, ExitingBlock) inside of ScalarEvolution::
getSmallConstantTripCount() (see the FIXME in the comments of that function).  The pessimization was added to fix a corner case involving undefined behavior (pr/16130).  This patch more precisely handles the undefined behavior case allowing the pessimization to be removed.
