__post_instantiate is a way to run code when the module is loaded. For
example it could run global constructors, which languages like C++ have.
This is necessary not just for dynamic linking but also a single file by
(wasm modules also have an optional start(), but that isn't good enough for
everything, due to reentrancy issues - start() is called when the wasm
instance is still being created, while __post_instantiate is called after
the instance was created.)
