Okay. I thought you will have only Safepoint in outer loop and will be filtered out in caller. But thinking again - you can have other nodes sinked from strip mined inner loop there which could be users or some Phi nodes. But on other hand you missing case when user in a second strip mined loop followed first.

Anyway, your code is conservative and good. Reviewed.

It has to be tested more then what submit_hs provides. I will start testing.
