BTW, is there a way (with either GCC or Clang implementations) to
override the trap handler? If I could get the instrumentation to call
an arbitrarily named function, we could build a better version of this
that actually continued without the large increase in image size.

For example, instead of __builtin_trap(), call __ubsan_warning(), which
could be defined as something like:

static __always_inline void __ubsan_warning(void)

That would make the warning survivable without the overhead of all the
debugging structures, etc.
