Relaxation is the process of *shortening* jumps that can be shortened, and
then re-running instruction layout to discover more relaxations until
fixpoint. Removing the -relax-all flag in clang won't help here, it would
I'm not exactly sure what the semantics of linker private symbols are, but
using a normal assembler temporary label is probably the way to go anyway.
