There's also no fdpic ABI support yet, so it's only going to be
nonshared text. For bare-metal/pseudo-kernel or a single-program
userspace on Linux it probably doesn't matter, but if you're trying to
run a real userspace it's very inefficient. I'd like to add fdpic

Also, I think it won't work unless the kernel traps and emulates the
cp15 thread-pointer access, since we don't support the get_tls
syscall. (We can add it if needed, but the whole idea of the syscall
is silly since it's no more efficient than trapping on the kernel
side, but support for switching to it makes userspace slower/heavier.
