Question Thread local support for ARM


I'm developing software for AT91RM9200 CPU using a crosstool (0.43) generated build environment.

Crosstool itself appears to work fine, but I have not been able to get support for thread local variables working.

Compilation of "__thread int variable;" goes wrong as described below

>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Building file: ../src/ARM_Test2.c
Invoking: GCC C Compiler
/opt/crosstool/gcc-4.1.0-glibc-2.3.2/arm-9tdmi-linux-gnu/bin/arm-9tdmi-linux-gnu-gcc -O0 -g3 -Wall -c -fmessage-length=0 -pthread -MMD -MP -MF"src/ARM_Test2.d" -MT"src/ARM_Test2.d" -o"src/ARM_Test2.o" "../src/ARM_Test2.c"
../src/ARM_Test2.c:16: error: thread-local storage not supported for this target
<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<

Content of "arm-9tdmi-linux-gnu.crosstoolconfig.txt", which to my understanding should contain necessary switches for TLS.

From what I know you need binutils-2.16.90 or newer.
