Where do you get this idea?  OTOH, I think it makes sense to only
install asan patches and enable it once a reasonable subset of its
testsuite (once that's in place) works on a target.  Until that point,
the necessary patches can be kept in mailing list postings for
developers working on that stuff (if more than one).

Who is served by installing patches for micro steps that maybe allow
libasan to compile, but not do anything useful?
