You're relying on undefined behaviour. If thinlto honor the command
line ordering *today*, there's no guarantee that it will in the
Best to fix the code instead of relying on compiler implementation.

You could use the "undefined" sanitizer to detect so called "static
initialisation 'fiasco' (problem)"

My 2 cents.
