Anyway, I double-checked by compiling it on mock (mock gets the standard Fedora
packages, instead of my modified ones). From it, TLS seems to be enabled:

    checking for XORG... yes
    checking for DRI2... yes
    checking whether to include GLAMOR_GLES2 support... no
    checking whether to enable DEBUG... no
    checking for GL... yes
    checking for LIBDRM... yes
    checking for EGL... yes
    checking for GBM... yes
    checking for thread local storage (TLS) support... __thread
    checking for tls_model attribute support... yes
    checking that generated files are newer than configure... done

Yes. When mesa is compiled with --enable-glx-tls, either mesa or glamor seem to
sendinvalid or incomplete commands to Cape Verde GPU on some situations (combo
boxes), causing it to wait forever to complete and hanging Xorg. The GPU itself
doesn't hang, as it is still possible to press CTRL-ALT-F2 to move to a console
terminal. So, it seems that the Kernel radeon driver remains working properly.
