I'm considering this patch [0] to move destroying the if_softc until
after we've detached. We've already closed the tunnel, dropped all of
our routes/addresses, and detach has freed us of our bridge

It seems that we could still have a reference to the ifp in the ioctl
path if something's entered just prior to detach, so we kill off the
if_softc prior to freeing and the rest is safe.
