I updated the libbsd from FreeBSD 9.3 to FreeBSD head (2017-01-09). 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 guess the x86 support is now broken.

I created a "freebsd-9.3" branch before the update.
