[Frama-c-discuss] value analysis of function contain shift operations seems unable to stop

The difficulty is not related to shifts, which are modeled precisely
and efficiently by Value. On the other hand, the function 'hash' uses
Duff's device [1], which contains a non-reducible loop. On such
functions, Value will ultimately converge, but the convergence will be
very slow. The development version for Frama-C Neon already improves
support for non-reducible loops that contain an explicit loop
construct (for, while, do while, i.e. all loops that are not
completely encoded using gotos). This is the case for your example,
which is analyzed instantly.
