Description Filip Pizlo 2013-02-10 13:47:18 PST
CompareEq(a, null) does strictly less speculation than CompareEq(a, b).  Hence if we do one run of CFA and eliminate checks based on seeing CompareEq(a, b) - which can happen because CompareEq(a, b) "proves" that we had done a check which we may later eliminate - and then later prove that b is null, then we will end up emitting zero checks.  And then weirdness ensues.
