Bug #12905: tailcall_optimization not working as expected under certain condition order
https://bugs.ruby-lang.org/issues/12905

* Author: Kai Sun
* Status: Open
* Priority: Normal
* Assignee:

* Backport: 2.1: UNKNOWN, 2.2: UNKNOWN, 2.3: UNKNOWN
----------------------------------------
Below code gets stack too deep error:

~~~ ruby
RubyVM::InstructionSequence.compile_option = {
  :tailcall_optimization => true,
  :trace_instruction => false
}

def run_forever(current, final)
  if current < final
    run_forever(current+1, final)
  else
    nil
  end
end

run_forever(1, Float::INFINITY)
~~~

However, below code works as expected:

~~~ ruby
RubyVM::InstructionSequence.compile_option = {
  :tailcall_optimization => true,
  :trace_instruction => false
}

def run_forever(current, final)
  if current >= final
    nil
  else
    run_forever(current+1, final)
  end
end

run_forever(1, Float::INFINITY)
~~~

Thanks for looking at this :)
