The differences are in areas such as synchronization and thread-local
We can generate more efficient thread-local access code on linux than on
for example.

Memory allocation and call into native/runtime functions both require fast
thread local access.
So a lot of under the hood code that the runtime needs to generate is faster
under linux.
