The loop reroller causes an assertion failure for this loop when
compiling for 32-bit targets:

#define REAL float
void daxpy_ur(int n,REAL da,REAL *dx,REAL *dy,int m)
    for (int i = m; i < n; i = i + 4)
        dy[i]   = dy[i]   + da*dx[i];
        dy[i+1] = dy[i+1] + da*dx[i+1];
        dy[i+2] = dy[i+2] + da*dx[i+2];
        dy[i+3] = dy[i+3] + da*dx[i+3];

The assertion failure is:

opt: include/llvm/Support/Casting.h:239: typename llvm::cast_retty<X,
Y*>::ret_type llvm::cast(Y*) [with X = llvm::PHINode, Y = llvm::Value]:
Assertion `isa<X>(Val) && "cast<Ty>() argument of incompatible type!"' failed.

Stack dump:
0.      Program arguments: opt -loop-reroll -S -debug-only=loop-reroll 
1.      Running pass 'Function Pass Manager' on module '<stdin>'.
2.      Running pass 'Loop Pass Manager' on function '@daxpy_ur'
3.      Running pass 'Reroll loops' on basic block '%for.body'

Steps to reproduce
1. Put the C program above in small.c
2. Compile
  $ clang -target arm-none-linux -mfloat-abi=soft small.c -S -o- -O1 -emit-llvm
-o test.ll
  $ opt -loop-reroll -S -debug-only=loop-reroll < test.ll

I also can reproduce the assertion using -target i386-none-linux.

I've attached the bitcode to the bug.

The assertion comes from LoopReroll::reroll() function when
expanding the the code for the new induction variable. The new
induction varible is cast to a phi node, but the value produced by
the scev expander is not actually a phi node.

  PHINode *NewIV =
        cast<PHINode>(Expander.expandCodeFor(H, IV->getType(),

The scev expander produces an induction variable that looks like

  %indvar = phi i32 [ %indvar.next, %for.body ], [ 0, %entry ]
  %i.055 = phi i32 [ %add27, %for.body ], [ %m, %entry ]
  %0 = add i32 %m, %indvar

The '%0' value is what is returned from the scev expander. It uses a
phi node, as an operand but is actually an add instruction.

It looks like the cast to a phi-node is only needed to get the
backedge value to use for the end-of-loop test. I made a quick
change to use a comparison of "NewIV == (IterCount-1)" instead of
"NextIV == IterCount". It works for this example, but it causes some
make-check failures for loop-rerolling and I'm not sure it is the
correct fix.
