 Log Message:
 firefox: different way of avoiding pshared semaphores for NetBSD
 NetBSD has slightly (NetBSD>=9.x) or very (NetBSD<8) broken pshared
 semaphores. Fortunately, so does macOS, so there's an easy way to avoid
 reaching the code relying on it which works better.
 Do so for NetBSD unconditionally, and enable multiprocess unconditionally.
 Avoids PR kern/55386 for NetBSD>9.0
 Avoids corrupt output on major websites, webGL bugs, etc. for NetBSD<=9.0
