  Add facilities for tuning the "em" driver's interrupt delays without
  recompiling the driver.  See the comments near the top of "if_em.h"
  for descriptions of these delays.  Four new loader tunables control
  the system-wide default values:
  The tunables are specified in microseconds.  The valid range is
  0-67108 usec., and 0 means that the timer is disabled.
  There are also four new sysctls (actually, a set of four for each
  "em" device in the system) to query and change the interrupt delays
  after the system is up:
      hw.em0.tx_abs_int_delay (not present for 82542/3/4 adapters)
      hw.em0.rx_abs_int_delay (not present for 82542/3/4 adapters)
  It seems to be OK to change these values even while the adapter is
  passing traffic.
