Thank you for the comments. Actually the patch contained CURVNET_RESTORE()
too. I just did not mentioned it :-). So if it looks like right solution here
is an "improved" version of the patch: vnet to switch is taken from thread's
ucred (on interface initialization) or from ifp->if_vnet.

yes I like it.. Now you just need a port person to patch the port :-)
