.. but without GCC_PLUGIN_RANDSTRUCT it's solid?

Kees removed even the baseline "randomize pure function pointer
structures", so at that commit, nothing should be randomized.

But maybe the plugin code itself ends up confusing gcc somehow?

Even when it doesn't actually do that "relayout_struct()" on the
structure, it always does those TYPE_ATTRIBUTES() games.
