    pf: Fix and improve interface group support
    The old PF code has broken partial support of the interface group.
    Without this patch, loading the 'pf.ko' module will panic the system.
    * Add event handlers of pfi_{attach,detach,change}_group_event()
      to support the interface groups.  Meanwhile, add event handler
      of pfi_ifaddr_event() that is called when an address is set up
      on an interface, and update pfi_{attach,detach}_event() handlers.
      (Based on FreeBSD)
    * Remove function pfi_kifaddr_update() as it is merged into
      pfi_ifaddr_event() handler.
    * Update pfi_initialize() and pfi_cleanup() functions (Based on
    * Split function pfi_kif_find() out of pfi_kif_get().
      (Based on OpenBSD)
    * The PF module will be properly initialized on module load, so remove
      extra pfi_initialize() calls.
    * Rename malloc type 'PFI_MTYPE' to 'M_PFI',  and merge with malloc type
    * Staticize internal functions and variables.
    * Some cleanups and style updates.
    Thanks to sephe for the guidance.
