sigmask2 and sigmask3 don't pass on amd64.  Andrew told me that all
tests passed on i386 before the merge;  I won't be able to check if they
still pass on i386 before tomorrow, but at least they fail identically
under COMPAT_NETBSD32 (which I haven't committed yet).

If anyone can test them on a real i386, I'm interested in the result.
