Sorry for the delay, been a busy few weeks.

The nesting makes it significantly worse, better to just let the
compiler to do the work here, rather than cpp.

Not sure I follow you here.

No objection from me, all of this TLS code is very much a
nest of vipers and corner cases.

Yes, it's the only one that uses this default in GCC. And, frankly,
given how this rtld code falls apart, I don't think anyone has even
bothered testing it anywhere else, much less used it in production.
