I have a keyring-style USB storage device which has "DELL" printed
on the outside.  Windows XP believes that it works and contains a
filesystem with some files.  It doesn't seem to work with NetBSD.

When I plug it in, NetBSD-1.6T displays:

umass0 at uhub0 port 2 configuration 1 interface 0
umass0: LEXR PLUG DRIVE LEXR PLUG DRIVE, rev 1.10/0.01, addr 2
umass0: using SCSI over Bulk-Only

My kernel config includes:

umass*  at uhub? port ? configuration ? interface ?
atapibus*       at umass? channel ?
scsibus*        at umass? channel ?
wd*     at umass?
sd*     at scsibus? target ? lun ?      # SCSI disk drives
st*     at atapibus? drive ? flags 0x0000       # ATAPI tape drives
sd*     at atapibus? drive ? flags 0x0000       # ATAPI disk drives
uk*     at atapibus? drive ? flags 0x0000       # ATAPI unknown

I was kind of expecting to see something about "wd<n> at umass0", or
"scsibus<n> at umass 0"/"sd<n> at scsibus<n>", or maybe "atapibus<n> at
umass 0"/"sd<n> at atapibus<n>", but nothing like that happened.

How do I make NetBSD do something useful with this device?
