You don't need a stub file if you use the “ifeq ($(subdir),csu)”
construct.

The other question is whether this belongs into the csu subdirectory.
Since TLS is not available in ld.so, the initialization would have to
happen rather late, after relocation, but before ELF constructors are
run.

(A side effect is that the rseq area would not be usable from IFUNC
resolvers.)

Thanks,
Florian
