Not remembering the context, I was initially confused about what exactly 
supposedly needs to be done in order to have ASan support, especially 
since I've been using it for a couple of years without any kind of 
modifications. Having read the whole thread now, I assume the discussion 
is now about getting MSan support, since apparently it's been already 
concluded that not much is needed for getting ASan support:

Please correct me if I'm wrong.
