Can we please avoid this kind of nonsense.   Everything is freed when
every program exits - doing explicit free() calls makes the program bigger
and slower for no reason at all.

By all means fix places where memory is truly leaked (whenre more is
continuously allocated, and simply discarded) but anything that is supposed
to remain until program exit should simply go away when the exit happens.

If the canitisers cannot be instructed to ignore such things, they are
much less useful tan they could be.

Could we add an #ifdef for this?



That's kind of how coverity and valgrind dealt with it.

Do you happen to know if one #define fits all and if not, can we add it to sys/cdefs.h?
