Consider that you want to debug a boot loader in userland. You provide a
small glue library that emulates the normal hardware access via direct
system calls. You don't use libc at all. You still have to provide your
own ASAN implementation of course, but now keeping -fsanitize=address on
the command line breaks things badly.
