I wonder why the patch turned from initially at least supporting intra-CU
support for ctor priorities into an ugly hack for asan.  I guess asan
doesn't care too much about inter-CU ctor priorities, it just needs its
ctors to run before anything in the same CU is called (mainly the
__asan_init call), other CUs either won't be asan instrumented, then it
doesn't matter, or will be, but they will have their own __asan_init call.

But sure, if collect2 can be used for full init prio support, the better.
