Possibly.  However Jitter in fact already uses -fno-lto with compilers
supporting the option, which in my opinion is the right solution --
albeit philosophically contradicting the now deleted workaround.  The
machine-generated vm2.c is and will always be an unusual piece of code
where compiler optimisation needs to be carefully controlled.

I support everyone's freedom of mocking any opinion or belief, no
matter how deeply held, with open disrespect and the same unrelented
enthusiasm of a toddler who has just learned the word "poo".
