  There is no way to inject instructions, so, without a patched
lightning you need to call C functions to return the data.

  Maybe some example usage may be helpful...

  In my sample language using lightning, I use only one tls
variable, that is a pointer to the thread data, and its value is
kept in a register, JIT_V0.
  For example, it is set in jit at:
  The main thread (compiler) is set at
and runtime for different threads is set at different functions in:
ovm() for the main thread, vm_builtin() for threads running
a builtin (C) function, and ovm_thread() for threads running
a jit function.
