Despite staring at the code for hours I didn't see the case was
guarded by an #ifdef block.  The patch I last attached doesn't compile
when the code is moved outside without the resolver being changed
since _dl_tlsdesc_lazy_resolver isnt present for x86-64.  Even then
the map->l_info[VALIDX (DT_GNU_PRELINKED)] != NULL doesn't seem to
work.  Mind you it no longer fails to run the binary, whether it's
actually using the prelinked value is another matter..?
