Bringing a new glibc upstream into Debian is a lot of work, and
waiting for m68k and Hurd to support TLS properly is sadly not an option
we can consider.
On behalf of the Glibc Packaging Team,
I got 2.5 to build with TLS but we need some changes to Hurd and gnumach
to handle it. As I understand it we have even more issues with 2.6.
Of course I'm certainly not the expert on the issue..
