I would like add both C11 threads support [1] and the final patches
to finally remove the sysdep-cancel.h asm hackery [2].

For C11 I think it generated a consensus that there is no impending
technical issues about current approach using underlying POSIX
primitives and Tovarld also think it is a good idea to add it on

The sysdep-cancel.h one is clean up not only to the cancellation
refactor, but also aims to simplifies a lot new ports additions.
Based that we will most likely have 2 news ports for 2.27, I think
we should get this on 2.26.  The only blocker for it is mainly
the x86_64 syscall refactor for x32, all other ports now do not
use any auto-generated cancelable syscall.
