Let's add it then? I believe such a call belongs to system unit anyway,
even without multithreading... SysUtils.Sleep can then call such function
explicitely for platforms not ensuring giving up timeslice as part of the
usual sleep functionality, Drivers.GiveUpTimeslice (from FV) should use
the same call.
