Default Requesting libnvidia-tls nosegneg build

Can we, at some point in the future, get a build of libnvidia-tls compiled with the gcc machine option -mno-tls-direct-seg-refs as an additional nosegneg shared library? It will make life better for those running the nVidia driver in a Xen environment, without the hypervisor continually adding the thread base pointer and printing:

Nov 13 15:32:38 brichmond1 kernel: printk: 4795 messages suppressed.
Nov 13 15:32:38 brichmond1 kernel: 4gb seg fixup, process compiz (pid 2704), cs:ip 73:00c811a0

Any time an OpenGL app that dynamically links libnvidia-tls runs (notably, compiz).
