- FixedPointNumbers.jl invalidates quite a bit, in particular from LoopVectorization calling
`sum(::Vector{Any})`

`inserting reduce_first(::typeof(Base.add_sum), x::FixedPointNumbers.FixedPoint) in FixedPointNumbers at ~/.julia/packages/FixedPointNumbers/HAGk2/src/FixedPointNumbers.jl:295 invalidated: backedges: 1: superseding reduce_first(::typeof(Base.add_sum), x) in Base at reduce.jl:394 with MethodInstance for Base.reduce_first(::typeof(Base.add_sum), ::Any) (309 children)`

- OrderedCollections.jl invalidates quite a bit
`inserting convert(::Type{OrderedCollections.OrderedDict{K, V}}, d::OrderedCollections.OrderedDict{K, V}) where {K, V} in OrderedCollections at ~/.julia/packages/OrderedCollections/PRayh/src/ordered_dict.jl:110 invalidated: backedges: 1: superseding convert(::Type{T}, x::AbstractDict) where T<:AbstractDict in Base at abstractdict.jl:561 with MethodInstance for convert(::Type, ::AbstractDict) (134 children)`

- LoopVectorization.jl invalidates some code in HDF5.jl and indexing:
`inserting convert(::Type{T}, i::LoopVectorization.UpperBoundedInteger) where T<:Number in LoopVectorization at /home/hendrik/.julia/packages/LoopVectorization/e7fJe/src/reconstruct_loopset.jl:25 invalidated: backedges: 1: superseding convert(::Type{T}, x::Number) where T<:Number in Base at number.jl:7 with MethodInstance for convert(::Type{UInt64}, ::Integer) (3 children) 2: superseding convert(::Type{T}, x::Number) where T<:Number in Base at number.jl:7 with MethodInstance for convert(::Type{Int64}, ::Integer) (17 children) 3: superseding convert(::Type{T}, x::Number) where T<:Number in Base at number.jl:7 with MethodInstance for convert(::Type{Int32}, ::Integer) (99 children) 17 mt_cache`

- Geometry basics also invalidates code in HDF5.jl etc.
`inserting convert(::Type{IT}, x::GeometryBasics.OffsetInteger) where IT<:Integer in GeometryBasics at /home/hendrik/.julia/packages/GeometryBasics/5Sb5M/src/offsetintegers.jl:40 invalidated: mt_backedges: 1: signature convert(::Type{T}, x::Number) where T<:Number in Base at number.jl:7 (formerly convert(::Type{T}, x::Number) where T<:Number in Base at number.jl:7) triggered MethodInstance for Colors._precompile_() (1 children) 2: signature convert(::Type{T}, x::Number) where T<:Number in Base at number.jl:7 (formerly convert(::Type{T}, x::Number) where T<:Number in Base at number.jl:7) triggered MethodInstance for parse(::Type{ColorTypes.RGB{FixedPointNumbers.N0f8}}, ::String) (1 children) 3: signature convert(::Type{T}, x::Number) where T<:Number in Base at number.jl:7 (formerly convert(::Type{T}, x::Number) where T<:Number in Base at number.jl:7) triggered MethodInstance for Colors._parse_colorant(::String) (1 children) backedges: 1: superseding convert(::Type{T}, x::Number) where T<:Number in Base at number.jl:7 with MethodInstance for convert(::Type{Int64}, ::Integer) (9 children) 2: superseding convert(::Type{T}, x::Number) where T<:Number in Base at number.jl:7 with MethodInstance for convert(::Type{Int32}, ::Integer) (91 children)`

- ForwardDiff.jl invalidates some string code: fix type instability/invalidations from `nextind` by ranocha · Pull Request #46489 · JuliaLang/julia · GitHub
- StaticArrays.jl also invalidates quite a bit, e.g.,
`inserting similar(::Type{A}, shape::Union{Tuple{SOneTo, Vararg{Union{Integer, Base.OneTo, SOneTo}}}, Tuple{Union{Integer, Base.OneTo}, SOneTo, Vararg{Union{Integer, Base.OneTo, SOneTo}}}, Tuple{Union{Integer, Base.OneTo}, Union{Integer, Base.OneTo}, SOneTo, Vararg{Union{Integer, Base.OneTo, SOneTo}}}}) where A<:AbstractArray in StaticArrays at ~/.julia/packages/StaticArrays/68nRv/src/abstractarray.jl:156 invalidated: mt_backedges: 1: signature Tuple{typeof(similar), Type{Array{Union{Int64, Symbol}, _A}} where _A, Tuple{Union{Integer, AbstractUnitRange}}} triggered MethodInstance for similar(::Type{Array{Union{Int64, Symbol}, _A}}, ::Union{Integer, AbstractUnitRange}) where _A (0 children) 2: signature Tuple{typeof(similar), Type{Array{Union{Int64, Symbol}, _A}} where _A, Any} triggered MethodInstance for Base._array_for(::Type{Union{Int64, Symbol}}, ::Base.HasShape, ::Any) (0 children) 3: signature Tuple{typeof(similar), Type{Array{Any, _A}} where _A, Tuple{Union{Integer, AbstractUnitRange}}} triggered MethodInstance for similar(::Type{Array{Any, _A}}, ::Union{Integer, AbstractUnitRange}) where _A (0 children) 4: signature Tuple{typeof(similar), Type{Array{Any, _A}} where _A, Any} triggered MethodInstance for Base._array_for(::Type{Any}, ::Base.HasShape, ::Any) (0 children) 5: signature Tuple{typeof(similar), Type{Array{Base.PkgId, _A}} where _A, Tuple{Union{Integer, AbstractUnitRange}}} triggered MethodInstance for similar(::Type{Array{Base.PkgId, _A}}, ::Union{Integer, AbstractUnitRange}) where _A (0 children) 6: signature Tuple{typeof(similar), Type{Array{Base.PkgId, _A}} where _A, Any} triggered MethodInstance for Base._array_for(::Type{Base.PkgId}, ::Base.HasShape, ::Any) (0 children) 7: signature Tuple{typeof(similar), Type{Array{Union{Int64, Symbol}, _A}} where _A, Tuple{Union{Integer, AbstractUnitRange}}} triggered MethodInstance for similar(::Type{Array{Union{Int64, Symbol}, _A}}, ::Tuple{Union{Integer, Base.OneTo}}) where _A (9 children) 8: signature Tuple{typeof(similar), Type{Array{Base.PkgId, _A}} where _A, Tuple{Union{Integer, AbstractUnitRange}}} triggered MethodInstance for similar(::Type{Array{Base.PkgId, _A}}, ::Tuple{Union{Integer, Base.OneTo}}) where _A (9 children) 9: signature Tuple{typeof(similar), Type{Array{Any, _A}} where _A, Tuple{Union{Integer, AbstractUnitRange}}} triggered MethodInstance for similar(::Type{Array{Any, _A}}, ::Tuple{Union{Integer, Base.OneTo}}) where _A (136 children)`

- There are of course more invalidations, but they seem to be less severe, e.g.,

hopefully fix invalidations in API from AbstractFFTs by ranocha · Pull Request #3180 · JuliaLang/Pkg.jl · GitHub

However, I would have expected that these invalidations happen also with Julia v1.7 - or do I miss something?
