This node shuts down upon receipt of a NGM_SHUTDOWN control message. The associated interface is removed and its name becomes available for reuse by future
.Vt eiface nodes.
Unlike most other node types, an
.Vt eiface node does not go away when all hooks have been disconnected; rather, and explicit NGM_SHUTDOWN control message is required.
