Description

Reported by John Marino in
http://gnats.netbsd.org/cgi-bin/query-pr-single.pl?number=45500.

The version i386 of libc has "getcontext" but the amd64 version not.
The work in "getcontext" is previous to GSoC/amd64 (one and half year). I think
the GSoC project didn't ported "getcontext" to amd64.

I've set the priority to bug, not feature request, because this is a
inconsistency libc/i386 vs libc/amd64.
