It can have side effects because of the order that PhaseIdealLoop schedules things. It performs a late schedule so invariant things can end up inside the loop body if they are only used in the loop. The makes identifying loop members simpler but the Invariance helper class is used by the predication code to make clones outside the loop so that truly invariant values will appear invariant. So I've rearranged the code a bit more so we any values we clone are create with the control of the higher if. I've also redistributed some code which was shared before since I think it obfuscated what was really happening, particular once we needed to have two new ifs in the range check case. I'm running CTW to make sure that some of the asserts I added don't fail but it works the same as before. I've updated the webrev.

I chickened out at the last minuted and restored but didn't recompile. I think I'll stick with deleting it. I've regenerated the webrev.
