    This is a good idea; something that I brought up in initial code
    review (on github). Would it be ok with you to land the core first,
    then follow up with this suggestion?

    Also, AutoFDO production builds are so incredibly similar to PGO
    builds that I could see a possible path forward:
    1. land PGO upstream
    2. adds docs for AutoFDO
    3. consider a config for hardcoding the location of the profiling data
    so that we don't need to specify it at the command line invocation of
    ~Nick Desaulniers
