TLS initializers, for example constructors of thread-local variables, don't necessarily get called. If for example a thread was created before a module is loaded, the module's TLS initializers are not executed for this particular thread.
This is why Microsoft added support for dynamic TLS initialization. Before every use of thread-local variables, a check is added that runs the module's TLS initializers on-demand.
To do this, the method `__dyn_tls_on_demand_init` gets called. Internally, it simply calls `__dyn_tls_init`.
To prevent calling initializers again, a guard variable called `__tls_guard` is checked and set before executing the call.
No additional TLS initializer that sets the guard needs to be emitted, as the guard always gets set by `__dyn_tls_init`.
The guard is also checked again within `__dyn_tls_init`. This makes our check redundant, however, as Microsoft's compiler also emits this check, the behaviour is adopted here.
