The technique of using an accumulator to keep the whole system
"plugged" is one of the ideas you can use versus the need for
global variables, volatile, etc. This comment and code returning
from main says a lot:

     // This is ultimately responsible for preventing all the test code
     // from being optimized away. Change this to return 0 and you
     // unplug the whole test's life support system.
     return test::live_code != 0;
