I committed it, since the patch itself was ok. Maybe it should have been
attempted to come to one implementation for free/open/net in bsd.pas though.

What I was hinting above maybe the sysutils code should use MONOTONIC_FAST,
not MONOTONIC on FreeBSD. Granularity worsens, but performnace improves.

It depends on what the sysutils routine is supposed to favor.
