I wonder why you need this? You're providing a new OS with new
build system, tools, etc.

TLS is entirely a legacy application backwards compatibility hack
designed to support badly designed C applications. It has no
function in new code and should NOT be supported in an OS layer
that doesn't need to support broken legacy apps.

Threads already have local storage -- their stacks. That's
all you need.
