Bug description

After world.opt is built:

$ ./tools/check-symbol-names asmrun/.a byterun/.a
asmrun/libasmruni.a[misc.i.o]: CAML_INSTR_ATEXIT T
asmrun/libasmruni.a[misc.i.o]: CAML_INSTR_INIT T
asmrun/libasmruni.a[misc.i.o]: CAML_INSTR_LOG B
asmrun/libasmruni.a[misc.i.o]: CAML_INSTR_STARTTIME C
asmrun/libasmruni.a[misc.i.o]: CAML_INSTR_STOPTIME C
byterun/libcamlrund.a[instrtrace.d.o]: names_of_instructions D
byterun/libcamlruni.a[misc.i.o]: CAML_INSTR_ATEXIT T
byterun/libcamlruni.a[misc.i.o]: CAML_INSTR_INIT T
byterun/libcamlruni.a[misc.i.o]: CAML_INSTR_LOG B
byterun/libcamlruni.a[misc.i.o]: CAML_INSTR_STARTTIME C
byterun/libcamlruni.a[misc.i.o]: CAML_INSTR_STOPTIME C

We should probably prefix names_of_instructions.
We should also rename CAML_* into some caml_* -- or add CAML_* as another private namespace in tools/check-symbol-names.

Alternatively, "names_of_instructions" could be made "static", as it is used only in the file that defines it (byterun/instrtrace.c).
