    Okay... I also don't seem to understand the more fundamental issue here,
    which is:

    Why are we dropping the prefix?

    It may be "insufficient", but at least it stands out like a sore thumb
    and makes mistakes harder. It would be a different thing if we could
    actually use the TLS ABI, but we really can't.
