Add option a new sim-hint  no-nptl-pthread-stackcache.

Activating this hint using --sim-hints=no-nptl-pthread-stackcache
means the glibc nptl stack cache will be disabled.

Disabling this stack/tls cache avoids helgrind false positive race conditions
errors when using __thread variables.

Note: disabling the stack cache is done by a kludge, dependent on
internal knowledge of glibc code, and using libpthread debug info.
So, this kludge might be broken with newer glibc version.
This has been tested on various platforms and various
glibc versions 2.11, 2.16 and 2.18

To check if the disabling works, you can do:
valgrind --tool=helgrind --sim-hints=no-nptl-pthread-stackcache -d -v ./helgrind/tests/tls_threads |& grep kludge

If you see the below 2 lines, then hopefully the stack cache has been disabled.

--12624:1:sched    pthread stack cache size disabling done via kludge
