-emulated-tls is particularly interesting for LTO because it is
automatically set by the fronted during compilation for Android and
OpenBSD (see clang lib/Driver/ToolChains/Clang.cpp). At the very
least, perhaps this can be set in tools::AddGoldPlugin as well to keep
the same default behavior under LTO?
