>     Backport kqueue integration from master

My FreeBSD 10 VM has been reanimated. Last time I've used it was June
2016, so everything is dusty there.

As time permits, I'll check the kqueue vs remote handlers status.

Looks interesting, but I have no idea about its state. Last commit is
from 23 Jul 2016; is it still maintained actively?

A similar approach like fswatch is the already integrated gfilenotify
library. Honestly, this is the most problematic backend.
