Simply put into os_posix.cpp.

This is similar to other OS methods shared by all Unix OSes, so that it
is found during compilation in all these OSes. Ie. this follows current
standards in that respect.

As mentioned, the OS class is currently being refactored where
inheritance instead of #include is used to share functionality with all
OSes. At least I think this is the currently agreed upon approach by the
runtime team as far as I could understand.
