I admit I haven't looked at the GDB changes, but how will the debugger know
if it is an emutls emulation or normal ELF TLS, if the same op is used
in both cases?

Also, as this effectively requires the latest unreleased GDB under the
default options for something that has been working previously, I wonder
if it e.g. for some time shouldn't be guarded with dwarf_version >= 5
(which will require substantial changes in gdb anyway), and only be changed
back to dwarf_version >= 3 in 2 years or so when newer debugger will be much
more common.
