Thread local storage and PowerPC

Hi all friends of PowerPC!

My last gripe hindering me calling out "VICTORY!" on my
large PPC embedded project is thread level storage not
being implemented in the backend. I have filed this bug:

  http://llvm.org/PR12593

I wonder whether there is some fundamental obstacle
(compared to the x86 backend, where this feature seems
to work), or is it just "simple matter of programming"?

Maybe I just need some orientation and can implement this
myself... Any feedback is appreciated.

Cheers and thanks,

    Gabor

Gabor,

These is some programming necessary, but just a few days ago, someone
sent me a patch half-implementing this, so it is definitely being
worked on.

Since it sounds like you're volunteering to help, I'll contact you
off-list.
