FreeBSD Not too long ago, Apple open sourced its Grand Central Dispatch library, which aids in developing multithreaded code. It was suggested that it could be ported to other platforms, and the FreeBSD team has done exactly that. They have also done a lot of work related to getting GCD to work in a POSIX environment.

Did Apple get this?

It sounds like a lot of work was with the library itself and not so much modifying any FreeBSD kernel code. I would hope all of their work (probably a buch of #ifdef __freebsd__'s) is put into the official GCD codebase.
