Unfortunately, as mentioned in my
mail, without the new dyninit pass this causes dynamic initialization of
many variables, 6.5KB _GLOBAL__sub_I_* on x86_64 and 12.5KB on i686.

The following so far only lightly tested patch makes the ctor constexpr
so that already the FE is able to statically initialize all those.

I don't have access to Darwin nor to the broken versions of clang, do you
think you could test bootstrap there with this too?
Especially because 11.x is not going to have the dyninit optimization for
sure, it would be nice to do this on the 11 branch too.
