Use a define to manage the stdio thread cancellation support.  Disable

POSIX threads is optional and depends on a configuration option.  To
support all RTEMS configurations we have to drop the thread cancellation
support.  A long term solution has to be developed in RTEMS to deal with
this.  Once this is done, we can enable the support in Newlib again.

Wouldn't it be much cleaner code-wise to override the pthread_setcancelstate
function with an RTEMS-specific dummy if cancellation is not supported?

This could be an option. Makes the usage of pthread_setcancelstate sense if no locks are used?
