src/lib/libpthread/arch/arm/pthread_md.h seems to use the __APCS_26__
preprocessor symbol to decide what mode to set in the CPSR of new
ucontexts.  This is wrong for NetBSD, since we run APCS-32 code on both
26-bit and 32-bit CPUs, so the determination of what to put in the CPSR
has to be made at run-time somehow.

Grep pthread_md.h for __APCS_26__.  If it's using it, it's broken.
