I fear both Adrian's and my patch fall short of addressing the issue of 
generic USB device attach handling in VIMAGE kernels, i.e. the patches 
discussed in this thread might be OK for preventing panics with ng_ubt, but 
what about USB ethernet or wifi devices?  If I recall correctly the USB 
stack has a separate thread which handles device attach events, and IMO the 
curvnet context should be set there to cover a broader set of different
