Networking Support in VirtualBox

I am using all of your latest commit changes and I can get everything to
work except if the test.vbox file has Adapter 0 enabled="true".  if set to
false (obviously there is no networking) but the two VM's boot into their
respective windows, I can interact with each independently.  When I enable
the adapter in the test.vbox file, Genode still boots, the GUI starts, the
two windows appear but they remain stubbornly blank.

Here is what I tried to fix this:
I have increased the caps on the nic_bridge to 200
increased the caps on the vbox1 and vbox2 to 500
I removed the nic bridge from the config for one vbox in the
(to see if I can get video on even one)

Nothing I changed made any difference.  As long as enabled="true" was set,
neither VM loaded at all.  This is booting from physical hardware, not in a
virtualized environment.  Thoughts?
