deduplicate __pthread_self thread pointer adjustment out of each arch
the adjustment made is entirely a function of TLS_ABOVE_TP and TP_OFFSET. aside from avoiding repetition of the TP_OFFSET value and arithmetic, this change makes pthread_arch.h independent of the definition of struct __pthread from pthread_impl.h. this in turn will allow inclusion of pthread_arch.h to be moved to the top of pthread_impl.h so that it can influence the definition of the structure. previously, arch files were very inconsistent about the type used for the thread pointer. this change unifies the new __get_tp interface to always use uintptr_t, which is the most correct when performing arithmetic that may involve addresses outside the actual pointed-to object (due to TP_OFFSET).
