Apparently solved by adding .tdata and .tbss to That change does
not give any visible regression on i386.

s) i386 TT-only won't compile, due to mispaced include in
sysdep/ptrace.h (under ifdef for skas). Trivial fix apparently gets it
to work correctly. Which is surprising - when running that sucker on
amd64 we get zero from
*host_size_out = ROUND_4M((unsigned long) &arg);
Of course, the real size rounded up to 4M is 4Gb there - 32bit tasks do not
have to share the lower 4Gb of address space with the kernel. Looks like
we survive, though - it boots and apparently works both on i386 and (as
32bit process) on amd64.
t) amd64 TT-only builds just fine, but gets buggered due to
mismatch between CONFIG_TOP_ADDR and start address - we get *both* set
to 0x60000000, which is obviously b0rken and doesn't match the old
code, while we are at it. We want TOP_ADDR at 0x80000000 to match start
u) amd64 TT is _still_ buggered due to unmap_fin.o attempts at
magic. errno sits in TLS for amd64, so unmap_fin.o gets very interesting
stuff leaking from libc and messing the link. IMO that should be dealt
with by brute force; namely, unmap-$(SUBARCH).S instead of trying to
play games with pulling stuff from libc.a. For fsck sake, we are just
making 3 syscalls there and switcheroo() is as low-level as it gets...
Will post once that's done...
