Host only interfaces should be down when not in use

Description

I noticed that host side interface (i.e. vboxnet*) stay "UP" even when VMs referring to the interfaces. They even stay "UP" when the virtual box manager is not present. It is nice, and probably semantically correct that vboxnet* interfaces are brought down when they are not referenced, or at least when the virtual box manager is not running.
