Patch.

I already sent this patch to the hackers mailing list and added this bug report on request:

http://lists.freebsd.org/pipermail/freebsd-hackers/2014-September/046091.html

We ported the FreeBSD network stack to RTEMS.  Some users want to write
network interface drivers in C++.  It would be nice if we can make some
FreeBSD kernel headers C++ compatible.

sys/buf_ring.h:

Mabye it is better to fix the integer type of br_cons_head to be able to
use it in atomic_cmpset_int().

sys/mbuf.h:

Maybe it is better to fix the integer type of ext_cnt to be able to use
it for uma_find_refcnt().
