 In that case, probably the right answer for the time being is to set
 an interval tree (or some such) that maps from stack ranges to
 threads. It won't be very fast, but it'll work... and will allow
 supporting different-sized thread stacks.
 Or we could have the pthreads sigaltstack reject any stack that isn't
 exactly SIGSTKSZ, and have SIGSTKSZ be the pthread stack size, and
 then one line of code in pthread__self or so would make it all work.
 Hrm, I wonder if PIE can be abused to provide TLS...
