No.  But I'm thinking about just disabling the error message for this
release, since yours is the second report of a problem.

  - Disable the message entirely
  - Print the message only under 2.6 kernels when LD_ASSUME_KERNEL was
not used and TLS would have been used but was disabled for this reason.
