Here's some info on TLS. Review D18960 has the initial implementation
for TLSDESC support: http://reviews.llvm.org/D18960

I've been occasionally testing FreeBSD/arm64 buildworld with lld and
managed to get everything to link with an earlier version of D18960
and an equivalent set of workarounds as on FreeBSD/amd64. There is
some TLS bug outstanding that caused all binaries to segfault at
start, though. I plan to take another look at that once D18711 and
D18960 land.
