I stress tested gif(4) in the same manner for kicks and got a very
similar panic in in_control(). I suppose that my change eliminated
a concurrency problem in vlan(4) and we began to feel the lack of
refcounting at ifnet level. Indeed, a thread can keep a pointer
to an ifnet beyond its lifetime and panic the system on access to
the dead ifnet.
