It should be noted that there can be only one rseq TLS area registered per thread,

process-wide (per-thread) resource that we need to manage carefully.

Is it possible to resize the area after thread creation, perhaps even from other threads?

If there is only one contiguous area, this generally means there needs to be linker support, similar to what we have for initial-exec TLS today.
