I do, but it's not part of this series. It's a pinch of link-time magic,
but it works reliably (see e.g. 1cbec37b3f9c). I will post it if/after
this gets merged. There were other approaches proposed in the past too
-- using objtool for that (not implemented).

Not only "other", x86 can override the types if need be too.
