Re: libsanitizer merge from upstream r208536

I was going to change instrumentation of unaligned and unusual-sized
accesses to simple callbacks.
00000000004b1f30 <_Z3fooP1S>:
  4b1f30:       53                      push   %rbx
  4b1f31:       48 89 fb                mov    %rdi,%rbx
  4b1f34:       be 04 00 00 00          mov    $0x4,%esi
  4b1f39:       e8 62 9d fe ff          callq  49bca0 <__asan_loadN>
  4b1f3e:       8b 03                   mov    (%rbx),%eax
  4b1f40:       5b                      pop    %rbx
  4b1f41:       c3                      retq

This is implemented in llvm, just need a flag flip. It also needs a
performance improvement in the run-time.
This is in my TODO, just didn't have time.

clang++ -g -O2  -fsanitize=address  ~/tmp/jakub-unaligned.c -mllvm
-asan-instrumentation-with-call-threshold=0  && ./a.out

Address 0x7fff9968a1af is located in stack of thread T0 at offset 47 in frame
    #0 0x4b1f8f in main /home/kcc/tmp/jakub-unaligned.c:23

  This frame has 4 object(s):
    [32, 48) 't' <== Memory access at offset 47 partially overflows
this variable
    [64, 68) 'v'
    [80, 88) 'p'
    [112, 116) 'w'

Apparently, this "unknown-crash" needs to be fixed.
Give me some time (may not have it this week though).
