Why do you think that ‘atexit’ is a better choice?

I do not have bug #, but the issue was introduced with the following commit:
commit f803b23879d9e1d9415ec1875713534dcc203df5 <https://reviews.llvm.org/rGf803b23879d9e1d9415ec1875713534dcc203df5>

  [COFF] Implement llvm.global_ctors priorities for MSVC COFF targets
  MSVC and LLD sort sections ASCII-betically, so we need to use section
  names that sort between .CRT$XCA (the start) and .CRT$XCU (the default
  In the general case, use .CRT$XCT12345 as the section name, and let the
  linker sort the zero-padded digits.
  Users with low priorities typically want to initialize as early as
  possible, so use .CRT$XCA00199 for prioties less than 200. This number
  is arbitrary.
  Implements PR38552.

The destructors are still in .CRT$XT for default priority (65535) now, but for non-default priority they will go into .CRT$XC.  I will upload a fixing patch with a LIT test shortly.

This clang-offload-wrapper commit will work properly, if we use default priority for the destructors.
