Instead of adding rarely excercised code in the exit path, I would prefer
to mark the allocation with something special so the sanitizer knows
I intend to never free the result and I am fine with "the leak". It could
still report a summary like "10k in 20 objects allocated and intentionaly
not freed", so if this goes up dramatically we may still notice.
