Just fixed a longstanding bug that prevented some FreeBSD 9 binaries running on MidnightBSD. (posix_spawn family of functions)

The fix is in CURRENT, as well as stable 8 & 9 branches.

Added wpa_supplicant and hostapd mports that are patched against KRACK. This is a workaround until base is patched.

Ryzen support:

Initial testing of MidnightBSD on a Ryzen 7 1700 CPU with an Asus PRIME x370-pro motherboard indicate that there are some issues that prevent the system from booting.

There are two problematic areas:

1. The system timer detection code is not finding a timer that will work .
2. The Intel NIC included on this motherboard is not detecting properly and causing a panic.

Still looking into this one, but thought I'd make everyone aware of it.
