I suspect we're going to need to add module level attributes in LLVM
IR for these options, then check those when synthesizing new function
definitions within LLVM.  At least we'll be able to point to this file
and say "hey, this is a general problem in LLVM, and here are 3
specific cases now where it's a problem."  Not a large problem, but
would help us save some bytes in the final object.  LLVM is not
producing data in this section for all code, just these synthesized
routines.
