+Summary: [PATCH] TLS issues
+[Rephrased from the mail "[PATCH] issue with libmono.so and dlopen"
+@ mono-devel-list. Sorry for that]
+If mono is built using the "--with-tls=__thread" option,
+the one and only libgc variable declared with __thread
+will cause dlopen(3) problems because its declaration doesn't
+specify a compatible TLS model.
+The default TLS model for unattributed __thread declarations
+is "global-dynamic" which doesn't seem to be compatible with
+See test case.
+Affected systems I tested with:
+SUSE 9.0-9.3
+libmono uses  __attribute__((tls_model("local-exec"))) for
+__thread variables, so I just added the same code block I
+found in utils/mono-compiler.h to libgc/pthread_support.c
+The patch will probably speed-up the GC a little bit, although
+I did't profile it.
+I'm not happy with the attached patch because it duplicates
+code between libmono and libgc, so I'd provide another patch,
+if you guys would accept this solution:
+configure.is probes whether the GCC switch -ftls-model
+is working. If yes, -ftls-model=local-exec will be added
+to the CFLAGS of libmono and libgc. MONO_FAST_TLS might be
