what is the purpose of mbuf type MT_HEADER? How is it different from
MT_DATA? The manual page says only "data is a packet header", which is not
clear - aren't headers of upper-layer protocols just data for lower-layer

(I'm trying to resolve PR kern/26937, the problem happens when m_cat is
called to join a MT_HEADER mbuf with a MT_DATA one.)
