I can say it compiles. I've tried to build it on FreeBSD 11. Didn't
tested it though.

Currently, the code looks exactly the same to me. If we don't factor it
out I'll have to make a third copy of it for libtcg, which is kinda
annoying. I'm factoring out only a portion of the header, which
probably doesn't change that much. If in the future there's some change
we're not sure about we can keep it in the non-factored out part.

I'll check if qemu-user for BSD has something in the testsuite.
