# AX_CHECK_TLS -- check whether the target supports TLS (thread-local storage)
#
# Based on tls.m4 from gcc and extended by TLS link test for cross-compiling
# support from http://old.nabble.com/Improve-TLS-link-test-for-cross-compiling-td24312975.html
#
# Note that AX_TLS from http://autoconf-archive.cryp.to/ax_tls.html supports
# more keywords for TLS. We are happy with the "__thread" only.
