Bug #75938 Modulus value not stored in variable

Status: Closed Package: Scripting Engine problem
PHP Version: 7.2.2 OS: Debian 9.3
Private report: No CVE-ID: None

Using this combination of code, $mod remains INT 0 instead of being set to INT 1. The wrapped var_dump however shows the proper value still.

I've tested this code on my Debian box with:
PHP 7.2.2-1+0~20180205160742.18+stretch~1.gbpb78b58

On my test machine, php cli works properly. However, php fpm shows this particular error.

My guess is that this is somewhere in the optimizer. Changing or removing any line prior to the first var_dump will result in proper output. Changing the values from variables to constant will result in proper output. Changing the modulus operator to any other operator will result in a proper output.

Test script:
function borken($columns) {
	$columns = (int) $columns;
	if ($columns < 1) return 0;
	$count	= count([1,2,3,4,5]);
	var_dump($mod = ($count % $columns));


Expected result:

Actual result:

Indeed, this is a bug in value range inference. The code handling modulus operations looks pretty bogus to me.
