[llvm-dev] LLJIT vs. thread-local storage

I think that's both true and not. Yes, it's not exposed through dyld to
reuse its TLS routines (or, for that matter, its existing linker
capabilities for in-memory objects). But I've also often seen that support
to be a thin wrapper around `pthread_key_create`, which is defined in
ISO/IEC 9945-1:1996 (``POSIX.1''). Or you can build your own emulation for
expandable TLS by putting a thread-id-counter in the original TLS, and
using that to index your own internally-managed memory regions.
