I think you'll find the exact same thing happens if you use a crt1.o
produced from crt1.c for static linking with LTO. Note that on i386
(and x86_64) we still have a crt1.s which overrides crt1.c; I want to
remove it at some point. Temporarily removing/renaming it yourself
will allow you to test what happens with LTO on this file.
