The purpose of splitting out the tuntap code into a separate repository is so 
that you can create a regression test for it to ensure that the basic network 
bridging is working.

Create a really simple ping test using only ocaml-tuntap before you even try 
Mirage (and put it in lib_test in ocaml-tuntap too).
