To improve here it would need to verify that all exits of the inner loop
exit to the same BB of the outer loop and that no exit skips any blocks
in the outer loop.  Like for

  for (;;)
      for (;;) { if (x) goto skip; if (y) break }

so it is just a simple and conservative algorithm it seems.  It's also
quadratic in the number of BBs of the outermost loop.
