Would we consider moving the newly added functions into their own file (or perhaps moving the outlined atomics functions into a different file), so that you can use outlined atomics without also paying the size cost of function multiversioning if you don't need it?

We can use `-mno-fmv` to avoid that dependency, right? We're interested in using that for our own code (where we don't make use of function multi-versioning), and want to prevent the compiler-rt support from being pulled in from the archive unnecessarily. It'd still be available for users who needed it.

If resolver called before constructor we get init_cpu_features_resolver hwcap and hwcap2 as arguments from dynamic loader.

Got it, thanks.
