Bug 5091921: Sign flip issues in loop optimizer

I came across a Lucene issue where it would read an index incorrectly due to a
HotSpot bug. In the issue tracker, they refer to two unfixed bugs in the
Sun bug tracker: 5091921 and 7024475.
I am interested in the former because it was filed in 2004 and it has a number
of duplicates (the most recent of which was filed last month - 7020614). It
seems pretty nasty and easy to reproduce with many isolated test cases, so I
was wondering why it has remained unfixed for so long. Did it just fall
through the cracks, is it complicated to fix or something else?

gives wrong results)
