:> Whoop, something done to the network stack has blown up bridge/tap
:> This will generate the 'mbuf ... was not tracked' messages, and

:You got following message, even when vkernel is not started?
Yes, sorry I wasn't clear about that.
I started getting the messages the moment I added nfe0 to the bridge,
I had not yet touched tap or anything else... it was just the adding
of nfe0 to an empty bridge that did it.
(i.e. there was incidental traffic on nfe0 at the time, it being on my
fairly busy network, which I presume was flowing into the bridge and
resulting in the messages).
