Sanitizers currently contain ugly list of glibc versions and their
sizeof(struct pthread).
	https://github.com/llvm/llvm-project/blob/main/compiler-rt/lib/sanitizer_common/sanitizer_linux_libcdep.cpp#L276

This list is not much maintained causing SEGVs of Sanitizers:
	$ echo 'int main(){}'|clang -g -fsanitize=leak -x c++ -;./a.out
	Tracer caught signal 11: addr=0x7f1087f51f40 pc=0x4222c8 sp=0x7f1086effd40
	==234624==LeakSanitizer has encountered a fatal error.
	==234624==HINT: For debugging, try setting environment variable LSAN_OPTIONS=verbosity=1:log_threads=1
	==234624==HINT: LeakSanitizer does not work under ptrace (strace, gdb, etc)

I would find better if just glibc made the value public, Sanitizers can then
read it by dlsym():

Do you know why the GetTLS function needs to know the size of the
thread descriptor?  And why it adds it to the start address of the TLS
area, without subtracting it from the area size?  I think this
identifies the wrong memory region as TLS.

This also seems like a use case for GLIBC_DEBUG (available via dlsym,
with no copy relocs). However, like you, I'd like to know why the size
of the descriptor is needed (XY problem).

I do not know the memory layout of glibc TLSes (all of their kinds there are).

I just find my proposed fix a better one than to play the catch-up with each
glibc version. If you can find some better fix I sure welcome it.

=
static void GetTls(uptr *addr, uptr *size) {
#if defined(__x86_64__) || defined(__i386__) || defined(__s390__)
  *addr = ThreadSelf();
  *size = GetTlsSize(); // get_tls_static_info_ptr()->dl_tls_static_size
  *addr -= *size;
  *addr += ThreadDescriptorSize();
