The keys are known at linking time when a) their context is module-local
and b) their TLS storage can be appended to main's TLS area (and that
can only happen during initial linking, of course).

BTW, another advantage of TLS over getspecific /wrt task-self is that it
overcomes its laziness: its now cheap and easy to set self in the thread

Philippe, could it be that vrtx's sc_tinquiry implementation is broken?
I only find the corresponding pthread_setspecific in the lib
constructor. That pattern totally disagrees with native and vxworks.
