Your knowledge is wrong.
Might not work out-of-the-box, though, as I haven't lately been paying
much attention to non-NetBSD platforms or tested them, since there are
currently no users in the tree. At least the pthread_islocked_np()
calls are likely to need some massaging. Then again, compiling without
DIAGNOSTIC on non-NetBSD might work as a quick fix.
