Hm, KASAN is introducing a weird function, resulting in a naked return
warning since we have RETHUNK_CFLAGS removed on that file.

0000000000000000 <_sub_I_00099_0>:
   0:	e8 00 00 00 00       	call   5 <_sub_I_00099_0+0x5>	1: R_X86_64_PLT32	__tsan_init-0x4
   5:	c3                   	ret    

Looks like the "KASAN_SANITIZE_rodata.o := n" isn't working somehow?
