One of the nice properties of a tracing JIT is that many of its optimization
are simple requiring one forward pass only. This is not true for loop-invariant code
motion which is a very important optimization for code with tight kernels.
+Especially for dynamic languages that typically performs quite a lot of loop invariant

In this paper we present a scheme for making simple optimizations loop-aware by
using a simple pre-processing step on the trace and not changing the
optimizations themselves. The scheme can give performance improvements of a
