Thanks to the support by Wolfgang, I could continue implementing kqueue
integration for Emacs. The code in branch scratch/kqueue is working
pretty well on FreeBSD 10.2. The example in the Elisp manual runs proper
except the notification of file attribute changes. This is a minor
problem only; other file notification backends have also problems with

test/automated/auto-revert-tests.el passes.

test/automated/file-notify-tests.el shows two failed test
cases. According to my debugging, it is not a problem of the kqueue
backend itself, but a problem how this test suite tries to catch file
notification events. Also a minor problem I would say.

How to continue? There are several options:

* Merge the branch into the emacs-25 branch.

* Merge the branch into the master branch.

* Keep the code still in this branch for a while.

Personally, I'm in favor of the first option. In any case: People using
*BSD or Mac OS are encouraged to run their own tests.

Best regards, Michael.
