That was my understanding as well. I've started looking at a design
for TLS on m68k, but this summer turned out to be busier that I
originally expected. I'll try to find some time in August.

One issue is that I don't have a real copy of the ELF ABI documentation
for m68k. I found a copy of the PPC documentation, but even that was
difficult. Does anyone have a copy or hints on how to find it? I'm
worried that the current ABI isn't really flexible enough to do TLS
in a proper fashion.
