TIOCMODG and TIOCMODS are defined in /usr/include/sys/ttycom.h. However,
they are superceded by TIOCMGET and TIOCMSET. In addition, fgrepping
through all of NetBSD-current reveals no reference to the old names.
A program which uses the old names (minicom) fails, so the back-compatibility
seems to be gone. So the macros ought to be deleted.
