I think you can just move those functions, and the 2(?) static support
functions they use, to mpm_common.c.  They're not Unix-specific; they just
aren't used currently by non-Unix MPMs.

This will add a little extra unused code for Windows and Netware, but
avoiding that in a general way might be unwieldy:

#if support-loadable-mpms || my-mpm-wants-pod-API
getting the right symbols defined

so I wouldn't worry about that until somebody can confirm that it is instead
the bit of unused code built into the server which is unwieldy.
