I'm going to take a brief look today. I haven't been using the sparc64 since 2012 so there is not much motive for me other than keeping it maintained. If it is too much trouble I will let it decay down the tiers toward deprecation.

I was disappointed in general when I looked for ABI definitions for TLS for various architectures. I think there is an Ulrich Drepper document describing a few (https://akkadia.org/drepper/tls.pdf) but I think it is undefined for a lot of architectures.

Does GCC have a default mechanism? I couldn't find any hint of architecture specific TLS in the few secondary architectures I looked at. If there is a default way of calling a method for TLS info, it would be great. But at this point, I don't think TLS works from a GCC perspective on maybe half the architectures we support.

sparc64 isn't a secondary gcc architecture so I am sure it works in GCC. Whether we want it around long term is another question entirely.
