rtems-libbsd: 6-freebsd-12 branch

Hello Gedare, Chris and Sebastian,

to summarize: I'll create a 6-freebsd-12 branch with the new commits.

Regarding documentation: We have a "Branches" Section in the README.md
of the libbsd. Sebastian added it in 2019:


If it is OK, I'll just update the description with the new branches.

I didn't find a good location in the rtems-docs repo. We don't have a
lot of documentation for libbsd there.

@Chris: You wanted to collect every location where we have to update a
description or version number after a release. I think the libbsd
Branches section in the README.md is one of these locations too. Beneath
that there is a

   rtems_version = "5"

in the libbsd wscript. I think you had a ticket to collect these
changes? Or is it a section in the documentation?

Best regards
