Description

Section 3.4 has rusted a bit with the recent developments in -tlsglobals and-swapglobals. We should advise users that -swapglobals is not very portable, doesn't work in SMP builds of AMPI, and has runtime overhead proportional to the number of global variables. I think we should move that subsection to the end of the section too.

For TLS globals we need to update the documentation to say that shared objects are now support, but that it may only work with GCC. Also maybe provide a Fortran example for tlsglobals.
