NIO and kqueue

I opened an issue in gnats for making nio use kqueue with a rough 
description of what needs to happen.

I recommend sending the FreeBSD Foundation some cash to help fund this 
kind of development.

I used all the 1.5 and the current 1.6 ports in production without any 
major trouble.  They seem quite stable.
