 Since the switch from YASM to NASM, thread sanitizer is unusable by

 This may be related to the way NASM stores dwarf symbols.

 Note: tested only with gcc-tsan.

 Note: we probably need to open a ticket on the NASM bugtracker if it's
 concluded we didn't mixed up incompatible options in our build system.
 Still, I consider this a regression since NASM wasn't the default

 Workaround: use {{{--x86asmexe=yasm}}}.
