Description

As per the divergence note in usr/src/cmd/bhyve/README.sync:

A previous sync skipped commit 0ff7076bdbc6dae5ea44c0acdb567e1cede199d1 which
introduced a generic backend functionality to network devices.  Without that in
place, subsequent updates reflect the absence of that subsystem.  Integrating
net backends has not been a priority, given the common use of viona on illumos.

Wiring these up would restore options for a working e1000 interface as well as the non-viona virtio-net, and would remove a load of divergence between illumos and FreeBSD sources.
