[vbox-dev] Patch to enable tap network interfaces

I have made a patch to allow the use of the 'old' tap mode network 
interface in addition to the new bridging mode. The changes are based 
entirely on existing VirtualBox code and a lot of existing code could 
simply be re-used as-is. The patch will (should) not change the 
behaviour of existing/other network interfaces.

The tap interface can be enabled by setting DEFS+=VBOX_WITH_TAP in the 
kmk makefiles (I could not find a more specific location for this 
define, as the networking code seems to be all over the place).

If applicable, I will hereby release the changes under the MIT license.
