jit: Don't inline functions that access thread-locals.
Browse files Browse the repository at this point in the history
Code inlined by LLVM can crash or fail with "Relocation type not
implemented yet!" if it tries to access thread local variables.  Don't
inline such code.

Back-patch to 11, where LLVM arrived.  Bug #16696.
