This pass seems totally correct, as well as the generated NIR and
LLVM IR for the revelant shader that hangs the GPU. This likely
triggers a new bug in LLVM which has to be fixed.

As LLVM 7&8 have already been released we need a workaround.

According to my collection of vkpipeline-db shaders, this is the only
game that is affected by this optimization.

Fixes: 0881e90c099 ("nir: Split ALU instructions in loops that read phis")
