    Heh, I ran into the same problem trying to do this trick for PPC64. You
    really need to use __thread and make GCC do the work, AFAICT.

    The worse problem is that a (static) per-cpu var declared *inside* a
    function gets renamed by gcc; IIRC some generic code used to do this.

    Anyone who quotes me in their signature is an idiot -- Rusty Russell
