I noticed that there isn't any protocol independant way for
network hardware drivers to figure out if a particular packet should
have a priority/TOS that differes from the default. Some drivers do
things like look in IP packets for the tos field and use that, but
punt if they get handed a different type of packet.
Idea for solving this: Add M_foo defines to the mbuf pkthdr
flags so anything that gets a particular mbuf can figure out it's
priority. Flags to add:
Corresponding to the IP tos flags. Also add these to M_COPYFLAGS.
