overlays should persist across reboots
#13500 upstreamed Joyent's network overlay support from SmartOS into illumos-gate. However, due to the nature of SmartOS, this code did not contain support for making overlays persistent across reboots that would be useful for other distributions. This support exists in OmniOS and should be upstreamed.

I've tested this in an onu environment, creating temporary and persistent overlays and checking the contents of the datalink.conf file, rebooting and confirming that the overlay exists after the reboot when it was persistently added and not otherwise.
Tested temporarily deleting an overlay (
dladm delete-overlay -t <overlay>) works and the overlay is restored on the next reboot.
I also tested several real-world scenarios with overlays that have VNICs created on top of them, and which use a VNIC for their underlay tunnel endpoint.
