lev /tmp$ gcc -c -O2 ansi.c && nm -S ansi.o | grep WriteString
0000000000004970 000000000000190a T WriteString

lev /tmp$ clang -c -O2 ansi.c && nm -S ansi.o | grep WriteString
ansi.c:2891:13: warning: format string is not a string literal (potentially
insecure) [-Wformat-security]
  LMsg(err, str);
1 diagnostic generated.
00000000000003d0 000000000000328e T WriteString

note the size of the WriteString function --- 190a vs 328e, thats quite a lot!
attached test case

this is most probably something in llvm codegen or llvm itself. I dont know
