Hi Vladimir, 

thanks for looking at this!

I updated the comment:
        // If the cast is derived from data flow edges, it may not have a control.
        // If so, it should be save to split. But follow-up code can not deal with
        // this (l. 359). So skip.
And uploaded a new webrev.

Best regards,

Hi, Goetz

The fix is good but the comment is slightly off. It is not "region 
edge", it is "control edge". In current case it could be IfTrue or 
IfFalse projection nodes which points to If node which we compare.

Also this control edge is required:

  359     } else if( v->is_ConstraintCast() ) {
  360       proj = v->in(0);          // Controlling projection
  361     } else {
  362       assert( 0, "do not know how to handle this guy" );
  363     }
  365     Node *proj_path_data, *proj_path_ctrl;
  366     if( proj->Opcode() == Op_IfTrue ) {
