Hi again!
I forgot to mention another important nit — the
Tarantool CI is incomplete, there are 20 runs missing.
I think you should trigger them again, just to make sure
everything is ok.
Best regards,
Maxim Kokryashkin

>>>Sergey Kaplun:
>>>* added the description and the test for the problem
>>>Part of tarantool/tarantool#8516
>>>Branch:  https://github.com/tarantool/luajit/tree/skaplun/lj-994-instable-types-during-loop-unroll
>>>PR:  https://github.com/tarantool/tarantool/pull/8642
>>>Related issues:

>>>*  https://github.com/LuaJIT/LuaJIT/issues/994
>>>I don't mention the 994 intentionally to avoid Mike bothering. Also, it

>>>backporting the following issue was created.
>>>I prefer to backport the patches (this one and the prospective for 994)
>>>separately. So, after this patch is backported, it doesn't add any
>>>critical bugs (always failing guard just creates a new side trace), but
>>>helps to avoid conflicts for future backporting (sadly remembered
>>>"Improve assertions.").
