GCC (and presumably other Itanium compilers that support dllexport) still
emit the vtable with the key function when the key is exported. It's just
not necessarily exported. All the TUs that are statically linked into the
DLL containing an exported key function can rely on the vtable to be there,
so I don't see any reason to add logic around dllexport here. Make sense?
