I'm incercepting atoi(3) & other functions in sanitizers. I cannot
reliably intercept them within libc internals (e.g. I'm marking certain
data under pointer as initialized, but not inside libc), this change
allows to keep libc as a black-box for those who overwrite atoi() in 3rd
party software and expect libc to still work as is.
