I wonder on what archs we would be able to do the MIPS curlwp optimization
(place curlwp in a reserved register).
Sparc64 and sparc will likely follow this in the near future (needs some audit
and will do some benchmarks first; it closely resembles TLS for userland).
What's the cost on other archs and what optimizations are possible?
