RTEMS uses FreeBSD 9.2 as the source of its TCP/IP and USB stacks.
How about something like the following instead:
The libbsd makes FreeBSD subsystems like TCP/IP, USB, SD and some more
usable for RTEMS. It tries to follow the FreeBSD development as close as
possible and therefore is updated to the latest FreeBSD HEAD revision
from time to time.

I'm not sure whether the "Network Stack Features" is still up to date
but if it is, maybe we should migrate to the style 2.
