[vbox-dev] Network restoration after snapshot

In my case, my guest os tries to send data as soon it is restored and
that fails because network is not up for 5 secs. So my guest os knows that
the data link is down but needs to wait 5 secs before sending data again.
It doesn't need 5 secs clean up its old connections when its informed that
the network is down.
I see the hardcoded timeout in the network adapters code.
