Hmmm, interesting. :-(

The tests mentioned in the bug pass for me, maybe I should try again. :-/

Even though this is what the comment said, I think it's awkward. I think you should do what we do for the StringImpl(CreateEmptyUniqueTag) constructor instead:

// We expect m_length to be initialized to 0 as we use it
// to represent a null terminated buffer.
, m_data8(reinterpret_cast<const LChar*>(&m_length))

> +    DEPRECATED_DEFINE_STATIC_LOCAL(StringImpl, emptyString, (ConstructEmptyString));

Please change this to

static NeverDestroyed<StringImpl> emptyString(ConstructEmptyString);
