The crash occurs because a counted loop has an unexpected shape: the
exit test doesn't depend on a trip count phi. It's similar to a crash
I encountered in (not yet integrated) PR
#7823 and fixed with an extra

That fix is not sufficient here, though. But the fix I proposed here
works for both.

After the counted loop is created initially, the bounds of the loop
are captured in the iv Phi. Pre/main/post loops are created and the
main loop is unrolled once. CCP next runs and in the process, the type
of the iv Phi of the main loop becomes a constant. The reason is that
as types propagate, the type captured by the iv Phi and the improved
type that's computed by CCP for the Phi are joined and the end result
is a constant. Next the iv Phi constant folds but the exit test
doesn't. This results in a badly shaped counted loop. This happens
because on first unroll, an Opaque2 node is added that hides the type
of the loop limit. I propose adding a CastII to make sure the type of
the new limit (which cannot exceed the initial limit) is not lost.
