/*
 * Thread Local Storage helpers.
 *
 * Usage:
 *
 * Only static-storage-duration (e.g. global variables, or static class members)
 * objects of this class should be instantiated. This class relies on
 * zero-initialization, which is implicit for static-storage-duration objects.
 * It doesn't have a custom default constructor, to avoid static initializers.
 *
 * API usage:
 *
 * // Create a TLS item.
 * //
 * // Note that init() should be invoked exactly once, before any usage of set()
 * // or get().
 * mozilla::ThreadLocal<int> tlsKey;
 * if (!tlsKey.init()) {
 *   // deal with the error
 * }
 *
 * // Set the TLS value
 * tlsKey.set(123);
 *
 * // Get the TLS value
 * int value = tlsKey.get();
