If you use sid, you can have /lib/tls by creating custom libc6:

apt-get source glibc
cd glibc*
vi debian/rules # add -mno-tls-direct-seg-refs to both _CFLAGS definition
dch -v old.version.0.xen.1 "Make a nosegneg version for xen"
pdebuild # go for a walk or have a nice cup of tea
dpkg -i /var/cache/pbuilder/DEBS-YOU-NEED.deb
echo libc6 hold | dpkg --set-selections

Of course y0u can use simply "apt-get build-dep libc6 &&
dpkg-buildpackage -rfakeroot -uc -us" instead of pbuilder, and make nice
apt preferences stanzas instead of simple hold..
