I hope this will finally enable thread local support to work in a sane way
in gcc so that we can actually use it in kernel space and get rid of all
the this_cpu_xxx() macros?

And thread local RMVs primitives may actually be provided by gcc and
be usable in user space so that we can write user space code with
effective cpu local variable access?
