Peter, can we agree on the following solution for this:
(1) Remove BR2_GCC_ENABLE_TLS, and enable TLS support unconditionally,
except when thread support is not enabled.
(2) Everywhere, assume that TLS support is always available when we
have thread support. If it's not the case (such as AVR32), mark
the package as "depends on !<architecture>".
Another solution is to add a config knob for the external toolchains.
