> When early_prop turned off in server_static mode, there is a NullPointerException during
running startup.helloworld. The bug comes from the last BB of the callee - DataInputStream.readByte().
Following are the generated binary code for this bug:
>   with early_prop
>     	02D67855 I15: MOVSX t26(EAX):I_32,t12(EAX):I_32 
>   without early_prop
> 	02D67865 I33: MOV t25(BH):I_8,t12(EAX):I_32 
> 	02D67867 I15: MOVSX t26(EAX):I_32,t25(BH):I_8 
> BH is defined if no early_prop. But in the caller - ICUBinary.readHeader() - EBX is actually
defined before the above part of code and assumed to keep unmodifed and be used later. See

> 02466A35  push        ebx  
> 02466A36  call        dword ptr [esi]    // call to readByte() and ebx is changed in
the callee
> 02466A38  mov         edx,dword ptr [esp+9Ch] 
> 02466A3F  mov         dword ptr [esp+98h],esi 
> 02466A46  mov         esi,ebp 
> 02466A48  mov         ecx,ebx    // ebx is used
> 02466A4A  mov         dword ptr [esp+94h],eax 
> 02466A51  mov         ebx,edx 
> 02466A53  mov         ebp,edi 
> 02466A55  mov         edi,ecx 
> 02466A57  mov         edx,dword ptr [esp+98h] 
> 02466A5E  sub         esp,8 
> 02466A64  push        edi    // the value of ebx is pushed
> 02466A65  call        dword ptr [edx]    // call to readByte() and exception thrown out
> So some part of EBX (BH) is changed uncarefully and an exception is thrown out finally.
With early_prop the bug is gone because there is no changes about EBX.
> I verified my guess by making some changes in Ia32RegAlloc0.cpp to only use bin packing
register allocation and found no bug when running startup.helloworld. My basic assumptions
are early_prop is NOT indispensable and each optimization pass should be independent as much
as possible.
