> Currently [drlvm][jit] contains ABCD (range check elimination) algorithm.
> ABCD algorithm works pretty well if iterations over an array is perfomed with array.length
access.
> However, there are a set of code patterns where ABCD algorithm won't work.
> For example, java.util classes ArrayList, Vector, HashMap, etc... very often contains
a field where a real upper bound is stored (and usually this upped bound is less then array.legth).
So, iteration over such arrays usually is performed by the following way:
>  for (int i = 0; i < real_length; i++) {
>     array[i]....
> }
> Where "real_length" is a field which contains real upper bound.
> Very often it is too expensive or impossible for JIT to determine value range for this
field and in such ways (when cycle limit is value obtained outside method) ABCD range check
elimination can't work.
> Suggestion:
> In case of cycle like:
> int i=0;
> while(i < real_length) {
>    checkRange(array, i);  // introduce explicit range check operation
>    ...array[i]...
>    i++;
> }
> Split this cycle to:
> int i=0;
> while(i < min(real_length, array.length) ) {
>    ...array[i]...         // NO range check here
>    i++;
> }
> while(i<real_length) {
>    checkRange(array, i);
>    ...array[i]...
>    i++;
> }
> After such splitting range check is useless at the first cycle and may be removed.
