I update currently the libbsd to FreeBSD head (2016-08-23) from FreeBSD 
9.3. This is a very big jump in terms of FreeBSD development. The main 
goal is to catch up with FreeBSD and unify the baseline of the different 
parts of the libbsd. The network, USB and SD/MMC card parts used 
different FreeBSD versions. Thus, using an USB network component didn't 
work before due to incompatible network stack interfaces. There will be 
some work to do for each supported BSP after the update, e.g. adjustment 
of network interface drivers. I cannot do this for everything.

I will create a "4.12-freebsd-9.3" branch before the update in the next 
days and then commit the update to the master.
