Isn't there a chance that the path that leads to the infinite loop can
be optimized out during optimizations so bailing out early could cause a
valid method to never be compiled?

private static void test() {
    while (true);

bails out in:

bool Compile::final_graph_reshaping() {
  // an infinite loop may have been eliminated by the optimizer,
  // in which case the graph will be empty.
  if (root()->req() == 1) {
    record_method_not_compilable("trivial infinite loop");
    return true;
