Mathias Lang reports:

DW_OP_GNU_push_tls_address is a GNU extension prior to DWARF2.
DWARF3 introduced DW_OP_form_tls_address with the exact same semantic, as can
be seen here:

https://reviews.llvm.org/rL274366
Caveat: GDB support was "only" added in 7.12, which was released on 2016-10-07.

Since I don't use DMD (debug infos are utterly broken on MacOSX), I didn't
observe any downside of this, but I was going over the DWARF code and found
this oddity and figured it was time to replace it.
