no, tree-level induction variable analysis is in
tree-scalar-evolution.c.  What you are looking for most likely is
simple_iv function (or if you are adventurous and want to handle
non-affine induction variables or evolutions in several loops at once
as well, analyze_scalar_evolution and instantiate_parameters functions).
