The workaround involves marking a single function with attribute((noinline)) and is detailed on the page,  so nothing too horrible there.

I'm guessing this was specific to the arm backend. As quite a few
people are building with MSVC daily.

It would be nice if MSVC defaulted to all targets instead of just x86
so we get more coverage on this type of stuff.
