// Map stack pointer (%esp) to thread pointer for faster TLS access
// Here we use a flat table for better performance. Getting current thread
// is down to one memory access (read _sp_map[%esp>>12]) in generated code
// and two in runtime code (-fPIC code needs an extra load for _sp_map).
// This code assumes stack page is not shared by different threads. It works
// in 32-bit VM when page size is 4K (or a multiple of 4K, if that matters).
// Notice that _sp_map is allocated in the bss segment, which is ZFOD
// (zero-fill-on-demand). While it reserves 4M address space upfront,
// actual memory pages are committed on demand.
// If an application creates and destroys a lot of threads, usually the
// stack space freed by a thread will soon get reused by new thread
// (this is especially true in NPTL or LinuxThreads in fixed-stack mode).
// No memory page in _sp_map is wasted.
// However, it's still possible that we might end up populating &
// committing a large fraction of the 4M table over time, but the actual
// amount of live data in the table could be quite small. The max wastage
// is less than 4M bytes. If it becomes an issue, we could use madvise()
// with MADV_DONTNEED to reclaim unused (i.e. all-zero) pages in _sp_map.
// MADV_DONTNEED on Linux keeps the virtual memory mapping, but zaps the
// physical memory page (i.e. similar to MADV_FREE on Solaris).
