NetBSD recently added SET, CLR, ISSET to sys/types.h (only if _KERNEL
is defined). I'd like to do something similar in FreeBSD. I see no
reason to needless deviate from NetBSD here. One could make an
argument for lots of different files, but at the end of the day does
it really matter enough to justify having it be different than NetBSD?

Here's my proposed diff, inline, for your consideration:

NOTE: That /* !_KERNEL */ should have the '!' removed, but I didn't
want to confuse things by doing that too.
