test case

SCEV is behaving inconsistently when forming SCEV for this zext instruction in
the attached test case-
%conv5 = zext i32 %dec to i64

If we request a SCEV for the instruction, it returns-
(zext i32 {{-1,+,1}<nw><%for.body>,+,-1}<nw><%for.body7> to i64)

This can be seen by invoking-
$ opt -analyze -scalar-evolution inconsistent-scev-zext.ll

But when computing the backedge taken count of the containing loop for.body7,
it is able to push zext inside the AddRec and forms the following for the same
{(zext i32 {-1,+,1}<%for.body> to i64),+,-1}<nw><%for.body7>

This allows ScalarEvolution to compute a valid backedge taken count for the
