wine needs amd64_set_gsbase and i386_set_fsbase.

amd64_set_fsbase and i386_set_gsbase are not used by any program that
I know of.  Also, they should be considered carefully: since our TLS
implementation relies on them, programs shouldn't mess with these
functions AFAICT.

The getters are neither needed by wine nor dangerous.
