I was wondering why the orphan section warning only arose recently.
Now I see: the function asan.module_ctor has the SHF_GNU_RETAIN flag, so
it is in a separate section even with -fno-function-sections (default).

It seems that with -ffunction-sections the issue should have been caught
much earlier.

asan.module_ctor is the only function AddressSanitizer synthesizes in the instrumented translation unit.
There is no function called "asan".

(Even if a function "asan" exists due to -ffunction-sections
-funique-section-names, TEXT_MAIN will match .text.asan, so the
.text.asan pattern will match nothing.)
