// This file implements some loop unrolling utilities for loops with run-time
// trip counts.  See LoopUnroll.cpp for unrolling loops with compile-time
// trip counts.
// The functions in this file are used to generate extra code when the
// run-time trip count modulo the unroll factor is not 0.  When this is the
// case, we need to generate code to execute these 'left over' iterations.
// The current strategy generates an if-then-else sequence prior to the
// unrolled loop to execute the 'left over' iterations.  Other strategies
// include generate a loop before or after the unrolled loop.
