No, I added a bare minimal to get EH working...

MCJIT works with static and large, but the MC code generator has a problem with TLS and large code model.

I see. Yes, on that model codegen would produce local exec TLS model
and we would only need R_X86_64_TPOFF32 (and making sure the code was
close to the tls block).
