Since packed TLS looks like the way this needs to be done, any 
chance one of the ldc developers might be able to toss this off?

This is the first time I've ever tinkered with a compiler, so it 
will very likely take me longer than it would take one of you.  
Right now, I'm looking at hacking dmd to do this, as that seems 
like the fastest route to get something working, but obviously 
ldc will need it too for Android/ARM and the dmd patch is not 
going to be reusable for ldc.

If not, not a big deal, I'm sure I'll get something working
