Use initial-exec tls model

The initial-exec tls model removes requirement on performing memory
allocation the first time a tls variable is touched by any given thread.
This is needed to ensure usage of the TLS from a signal handler works
fine.

Given that the link-editor figures out the right model to use at
runtime, we can change the tls model without changing the soname major
version.

This also brings interesting speedups over the GD model. This does not
affects TLS accesses performed by executables, but does affect TLS
accesses performed by libraries.
