Ugh.  This is wrong.  _UC_USER is private to libpthread because it's
performing a libpthread-specific optimization.  If you really can't
implement it correctly in userland, then _getcontext_u(), _setcontext_u(),
and _swapcontext_u() should probably just aliases for the system calls
of similar names.
