  Log Message:
  EntryExitInstrumenter: skip naked functions

The asm in a naked function may reasonably expect the argument registers and the
return address register (if present) to be live.

When using -pg and -finstrument-functions, functions are instrumented by adding
a function call to `_mcount/__cyg_profile_func_enter/__cyg_profile_func_enter_bare`/etc,
which will clobber these registers. If the return address register is clobbered,
the function will be unable to return to the caller, possibly causing an
infinite loop.

__attribute__((naked)) void g() {
#if defined(__arm__)
  __asm__("bx lr");

int main() { g(); }

It seems that the only one reasonable way to handle the combination is to
disable instrumenting for naked functions.
