libc: Use the initial-exec TLS model
This permits more efficient accesses of thread-local variables, which are heavily used at least by jemalloc and locale-aware code. Note that on amd64 and i386, jemalloc's thread-local variables already have their TLS model overridden by defining JEMALLOC_TLS_MODEL. For now the change is applied only to tested platforms, but should in principle be enabled everywhere.
