Note that the threader is run in two modes.

The first (and the one you changed) is allowed to thread through blocks
which begin with PHI nodes.

The second runs as part of the dominator optimizer, but is not allowed to
thread through a block with PHI nodes.  You didn't change the behavior of
this instance.

[ Note I fully expect that with Andrew's changes that we'll have a single
  mode for the dominator based jump threader in the future. ]

Anyway, I'm guessing that you don't have to worry about the second mode
(no threading through PHIs) since loops are going to have a PHI at the
the block which starts the natural loop.  Right?
