Hi,

I've tried to do this and it works for me however it alone doesn't solve the
problem.

Consider the resulting nir:

loop {
block block_1:
/* preds: block_0 block_7 */
vec1 32 ssa_8 = phi block_0: ssa_4, block_7: ssa_20
vec1 32 ssa_9 = phi block_0: ssa_0, block_7: ssa_4
vec1 32 ssa_10 = phi block_0: ssa_1, block_7: ssa_4
vec1 32 ssa_11 = phi block_0: ssa_2, block_7: ssa_21
vec1 32 ssa_12 = phi block_0: ssa_3, block_7: ssa_22
vec4 32 ssa_13 = vec4 ssa_12, ssa_11, ssa_10, ssa_9
vec1 32 ssa_14 = ige ssa_8, ssa_5
/* succs: block_2 block_3 */
if ssa_14 {
block block_2:
/* preds: block_1 */
break
/* succs: block_8 */
} else {
block block_3:
/* preds: block_1 */
/* succs: block_4 */
}
block block_4:
/* preds: block_3 */
vec1 32 ssa_15 = ilt ssa_6, ssa_8
/* succs: block_5 block_6 */
if ssa_15 {
block block_5:
/* preds: block_4 */
vec1 32 ssa_16 = iadd ssa_8, ssa_7
vec1 32 ssa_17 = load_const (0x3f800000 /* 1.000000 */)
/* succs: block_7 */
} else {
block block_6:
/* preds: block_4 */
vec1 32 ssa_18 = iadd ssa_8, ssa_7
vec1 32 ssa_19 = load_const (0x3f800000 /* 1.000000 */)
/* succs: block_7 */
}
block block_7:
/* preds: block_5 block_6 */
vec1 32 ssa_20 = phi block_5: ssa_16, block_6: ssa_18
vec1 32 ssa_21 = phi block_5: ssa_17, block_6: ssa_4
vec1 32 ssa_22 = phi block_5: ssa_4, block_6: ssa_19
/* succs: block_1 */
}

Now in both "if" (block_5) and "else" (block_6) blocks there are identical
expressions and no continue.
However there is no optimization to pull these identical expressions out - CSE
pass won't do this since it's a local CSE, only global CSE would help.
And there is no active global CSE pass, there is only Global Code Motion pass
with Global Value Numbering and it is not enabled, enabling it optimizes the
condition in question and in the end whole loop disappears as expected, however
this pass doesn't look something we want since in other cases it hurts shaders
and it is more than just global CSE.

Any opinions on this?
