Specifically, it sounds like proc_create_seq_private expands to an
empty GNU C statement expression (not sure why not a `static inline`
function returning `NULL` but ok), so in that case, this object full
of function pointer, and its pointed to static functions (whose sole
references are this object) all become dead code.

Thanks for the patch, looks good!  Make sure to include reported by
tags when someone else has reported an issue that you fix, in this
case:
