hmm... i do not really know anything about vimage (yet :), but the
call to  INIT_VNET_NETGRAPH() in ng_make_node_common() seems (to me)
out of place. from what i understand, ng_make_node_common() called on
all sorts of nodes. some of those are not even network related.

it seems to me that network related netgraph nodes (ng_(e)iface,
ng_(k)socket, etc.) obviously should  set vimage etc. pointer, however
for the rest of the nodes some reasonable defaults should be used.

as far as setting interface pointer in mbuf its going to be tricky.
bluetooth devices do not associated with any network interface, so i'm
not sure how to do it. i will need to study the code for a little bit
before i can make any intelligent suggestions.
