If the mbuf code seperated it out, this MIGHT be a possibility, I'm
pretty sure we don't want to run into some of the problem with resource
contention on mbufs.. Also, the buffer space may need more fine
management... The idea of a sink sending a packet that a source fills
also is kinda wierd (necessary for some dma operations)..
