IMHO the separate variable here is actually less readable than
just putting atomic_load_relaxed (...) inside the if.

Space before paren after dlsym.

No implicit Boolean coercion.

I'm not sure I understand this comment. Access what? Which object? What
does construct mean here? The best reading I can guess is, "We call into
the module in the thread created below, so it accesses its TLS and
registers its destructor in that thread." Is that what it means?

What's the point of this test? It should be an assert, if anything.
There is no aspect of what's being tested here that affects the return
value of the thread function, is there?

Perhaps use a macro for the DSO name string, so it's more obvious that it's
exactly the same thing in both calls.

I don't understand this comment. I guess "create the handle" means "call
dlopen", and both calls are in this function, on the main thread.

This is unnecessarily Linux-specific. I don't think you need to do
external inspection to test this. You can just do something like save a
pointer from dlsym, and then try to use it and if the module was unloaded
that will crash.
It's also repeating code from tst-tls-atexit.c (which I don't recall
previously noticing was doing this /proc/self/maps funny business that I
don't think is really what we want). Perhaps these two tests can share
that part of the code?
