The bug affects any software with high number of dynamic shared objects (DSOs) with TLS segments, and a high number of such libraries must be loaded via
dlopen() during application execution. This exceeds the initial length of dynamic thread vector (DTV) causing
ld.so (dynamic loader) to write out-of-bounds to DTV.
