Re: Patch to cache TLS in %fp7 to avoid _lwp_getprivate syscalls

Thanks for the link. I'll investigate the two approaches you discussed
and try to implement one of them. I was pleased with the hack that I
came up with, since it modified so little code and works great on my
system, but I completely agree that it's not the correct solution for
the platform.

Michael, thanks for the context about the TAS instruction. It's good
to know that it's not a problem for 68020+.
