Created an attachment (id=7506)

First file: original test case

I have two files attached: the generated file that was compiled from the
following program:

static init
  var i: int = ParseInt('5', 0)

And the result after opt -O3. There is no ordering issue. It dosent matter how
often I call opt -O3, it dosent unloop.
When you look at the second file line 52-63 (%vergleich.i, %vergleich2.i), this
is the inner loop to compare which decimal character is stored in %char.i
The outer loop's significant lines are 49 where the exit condition is made. It
parses a string till it meets the zero.

This outer loop only has one pass. The problem is, llvm dosent notice that the
outer loop operates on a constant string and could be unfolded. (unrolling the
outer loop would pull in the rest of the optimizations)
