 I guess the whole pseudo-autoconfig needs a rewrite. As i understand,
currently the autoconfig is not done by NetBSD itself, but the structs are 
passed through loadbsd to the kernel. Hence we need to rewrite the autoconfig
in a manner that the whole Z-Bus is resetted and then be configed again,
if that is possible at all.
