Do you mean that this has no sens independently of the platform?
IMO if we can implement thread specific storage we can implement fiber
specific storage. It is only a matter to storing whatever is needed on the
fiber context. You can find a platform independent implementation of TTS on
"Thread-Specific Storage -- An Object Behavioral Pattern for Accessing
per-Thread State Efficiently." or see the code from a
posix pthread_tss functions implementation.
