I think it would avoid the LTO partitioning issue, but it would also be a step
back in terms of solving their original problem, which was to avoid duplicates
of syscall entry sequence being potentially emitted.  As another GCC
discussion mentions, they started using toplevel asm there after they found
they couldn't instruct Clang not do duplicate that function, unlike they could,
with function attributes, tame GCC.
