In the extreme version of single platform LTO, we would bake one
device-info stanza for every subplatform. That may be a little overkill
(or rather too complicated for the user to know and too fine-grained to
be useful). So the middle ground is that we have subplatform in the
runtime_info, and the compiler has to do two loads. We can still benefit
from using BIT() though.
