  Introduce the notion of "persistent mbuf tags"; these are tags that stay
  with an mbuf until it is reclaimed.  This is in contrast to tags that
  vanish when an mbuf chain passes through an interface.  Persistent tags
  are used, for example, by MAC labels.
  Add an m_tag_delete_nonpersistent function to strip non-persistent tags
  from mbufs and use it to strip such tags from packets as they pass through
  the loopback interface and when turned around by icmp.  This fixes problems
  with "tag leakage".
