I thought you were referring to my remark that we supposedly only need
libcalls for TLS address calls, but IIUC you in fact reacted to my
remark whether CSE of TLS libcalls actually works, right?
Anyway, yes, if you have libcall notes, then CSE of TLS libcalls should work.

__tls_get_addr is not const, and not pure either.
