Loop predicate RCE upper_bound check matches an other dominating RangeCheck and split_if optimization moves loads to dominating test. In the bug case (step4() method) two code branches have the same loads from the same array (b) and they are combined and moved above array's index check and above lower_bound predicate check.

It is allowed to do that during loop peeling and loop predicates generation since they duplicate all checks. I also switched off predicate RCE optimization for counted loops with '!=' test since there is no guarantee that loop index will be in the range [init, limit) if init > limit.

Why are the fixes in IfNode::dominated_by and PhaseIdealLoop::dominated_by different? IfNode just picks a different node but PhaseIdealLoop gives up. Can't PhaseIdealLoop pick a safe node?
Is this line really needed?
! Node* upper_bound_bol = rc_predicate(loop, ctrl, scale, offset, init, limit, stride, rng, true);
! Node* upper_bound_bol = rc_predicate(loop, lower_bound_proj, scale, offset, init, limit, stride, rng, true);
I'm not against it since it's valid and maybe conceptually more correct but I'm unclear how it could have any effect on correctness.
