  [802.11 frame writing via bpf]

The plan is to merge this work into NetBSD once it works.  We'll also
be contributing back changes to make tap(4) be able to do
point-to-point (e.g. like tun(4)) or 802_11_RADIO, but defaulting to
the current behavior.  The code will of course be posted for review
before committing.

The remote interface code will also be available, as a separate
program with a pkgsrc entry.

My own take on the options is that flags for what encap has been done
feels kludgy, and that having an explicit raw queue is cleaner.
