Hmm, I guess you mean the ifdef PIC in mini-amd64.c: Did it because I 
don't know if I'm allowed to throw out the read_tls_offset_from_method 
functions.. (Don't know what this function returns if PIC is enabled..)

I don't really see how this can be done, as I had to change the offset 
variable (that gets returned) to intptr_t, so I can do a 'movq' in the 
asm part.
Basically it would mean to use another intermediate variable - but I 
don't know if that's better?
