  Workaround a locking problem in vlan(4). vlan_setmulti() may be called
  with sleepable locks held from further up in the network stack, and
  attempts to allocate memory to hold multicast group membership information
  with M_WAITOK.
  This panic was triggered specifically when an exiting routing daemon
  process closes its raw sockets after joining multicast groups on them.
  While we're here, comment some possible locking badness.
