It should be invoked. objc_load_module should set _objc_load_callback to
the local function objc_load_callback. Anytime the Objective-C rurntime
loads a module containing classes, it should call this function for each
class and category. You might have to trace the program from
objc_load_module to make sure the callback is really getting setup
