I'm interested in hearing more about how you do this.  Do you use
guarded devirtualization (i.e. `if *fn_ptr_loc != @foo then
side_exit(); else @foo()`), or is there something else?  I'd guess
implementing "invalidation" based deoptimization (i.e. the value of
`fn_ptr_loc` changed, so deoptimize compiles that depend on it not
changing) will require instrumenting all (?) writes that could alias
