  Log Message:
  [RISCV] Support emulated TLS

As discussed earlier in the [GitHub
issue](https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/issues/59500), currently
LLVM generates invalid code when emulated TLS is used. There were
attempts to resolve this previously (D102527), but they were not merged
because the component owners raised concerns about emulated TLS

The current state of the art is that:

- OpenBSD team, which raised the initial issue, simply has [patches
- Our team, which raised the GH issue, has patches downstream as well.
  We also do not use `malloc` or any [dynamic
with emulated TLS, so the concerns raised in the original issue does not
apply to us.
- GCC compatibility is broken, because GCC supports emulated TLS.
- RISC-V is the only architecture in LLVM that does not support emulated
  TLS, and work is being done to at least warn the users about it

With all these in mind I believe it is important to address the
consumers' needs especially given that there is little to no maintenance
