Subject: [PATCH v2] A small type change in __init_tls

Hi all,

Thanks for the previous review, and for explaining where I'd made some
wrong assumptions. I've pared the original patch down a bit.

This patch changes a size_t in static_init_tls to a uintptr_t, which
is a more appropriate type as the variable in question may contain a
pointer. Tested against libc-test with gcc 7 on x86 and clang 9 on
AArch64, with no new failures.
