Since Thread is in the kernel classes, it will require a co-ordinated 
change to the DRLVM and IBM VME (plus any other VMs) to keep things 
working across all of them simultaneously.

The alternative is to copy a DRLVM-specific version of ThreadLocal into 
working_vm/vm/vmcore/src/kernel_classes/javasrc/java/lang until the idea 
is worked out, then we go back and update the VMI.
