Branching for NetBSD 10

After a bit more than two years after the first NetBSD 9 release
(9.0 happened February 14, 2020) and nearly a year after the last
(so far) netbsd-9 release (9.2 happened May 12, 2021) we are in

We don't yet know how long the branch will take to the first release
(NetBSD 10), but hope it will not be more than three months. [But note
that all my personal estimates on NetBSD-10 have been off by years, so
this might need a correction - we will see once i915 works again.]
