[Gc] GC_use_DllMain and main thread registration

I just tried to use the collector with DllMain based thread registration
and found a catch during the startup phase of our program. Since I'm
using the collector as a replacement for the standard memory manager the
first allocations occur before I even have the chance to call
GC_use_DllMain. Subsequently GC_thr_init registers the main thread in
the table that is used for non-DllMain based registration. Once
GC_use_DllMain has been called collection from the main thread fails as
it cannot be found in the now relevant other thread table.
Is it safe to call GC_use_DllMain at the beginning of the collector's
DllMain function in case of a process attaching?
