As part of bug #168264 to make WebAssembly position independent, we should migrate all state currently stored on VM to TLS instead. We have 4 slots to use so it could be a speedup to do this.

I'll start off simply moving the state, and afterwards we should be able to experiment with which fields should pointer-chase through TLS->instance->field, which should be in a TLS slot, and which should be in pinned registers.
