Thanks for the summary -- yeah, that was my suspicion, that some
attribute was being lost somewhere. And I think if we generalize this,
and don't just try to attach "frame-pointer" attr to the function, we
probably also solve the BTI issue that Mark still pointed out with
these module_ctor/dtors.

I was trying to see if there was a generic way to attach all the
common attributes to the function generated here:
https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/blob/master/llvm/lib/Transforms/Utils/ModuleUtils.cpp#L122
-- but we probably can't attach all attributes, and need to remove a
bunch of them again like the sanitizers (or alternatively just select
the ones we need). But, I'm still digging for the function that
attaches all the common attributes...

Thanks,
-- Marco
