Did Go fail with gcc's emulated TLS in libgcc? My impression is that
it should usually/always work, but it's just very slow and
low-quality (lazy allocation). This isn't gcc's fault, just the fact
that it's impossible to emulate correctly. On the other hand, Go might
be generating code that accesses TLS directly, in which case the
emulation may not suffice.

BTW, does Go work with static linking? If not, you might need to wait
to celebrate until I add the dynamic-linked TLS support...
