[master] Workaround for the FreeBSD bug resulting in IfaceMgr test failure

This disables the test to receive data over a closed socket on BSD systems.
The 8.1-RELEASE version of FreeBSD has a bug which causes select() not to
return EBADF error code when invalid socket descriptor is provided. The
bug number is kern/155606.

// Warning: kernel bug on FreeBSD. The following code checks that attempt to
// read through invalid descriptor will result in exception. The reason why
// this failure is expected is that select() function should result in EBADF
// error when invalid descriptor is passed to it. In particular, closed socket
// descriptor is invalid. On the following OS:
// 8.1-RELEASE FreeBSD 8.1-RELEASE #0: Mon Jul 19 02:55:53 UTC 2010
// calling select() using invalid descriptor results in timeout and eventually
// value of 0 is returned. This has been identified and reported as a bug in
// FreeBSD:
// @todo: This part of the test is currently disabled on all BSD systems as it was
// the quick fix. We need a more elegant (config-based) solution to disable
// this check on affected systems only. The ticket has been submited for this
// work:
#ifndef OS_BSD
EXPECT_THROW(ifacemgr->receive4(10), SocketReadError);
EXPECT_THROW(ifacemgr->send(sendPkt), SocketWriteError);
