I've encounted this before. My solution was to get a ``reverse
postorder'' ordering of the basic blocks. Sorry I don't have a
reference. Then, ignore any CFG edge from a higher numbered block to
an equal or lower numbered block. This is guaranteed to break all
cycles. Natural loop back edges are ignored, and irreducible loops
are broken arbitrarily.
