// Shim layer symbols need to be ALWAYS exported, regardless of component build.
// If an exported symbol is linked into a DSO, it may be preempted by a
// definition in the main executable. If this happens to an allocator symbol, it
// will mean that the DSO will use the main executable's allocator. This is
// normally relatively harmless -- regular allocations should all use the same
// allocator, but if the DSO tries to hook the allocator it will not see any
// allocations.
// However, if LLVM LTO is enabled, the compiler may inline the shim layer
// symbols into callers. The end result is that allocator calls in DSOs may use
// either the main executable's allocator or the DSO's allocator, depending on
// whether the call was inlined. This is arguably a bug in LLVM caused by its
// somewhat irregular handling of symbol interposition (see
// To work around the bug we use noinline to prevent the symbols from being
// inlined.
// In the long run we probably want to avoid linking the allocator bits into
// DSOs altogether. This will save a little space and stop giving DSOs the false
// impression that they can hook the allocator.
