Re: unreadable XML proplists from drvctl(8)

Can we get 'drvctl -r xyzbus0' to return an error if more then one
property is available and return the supported values at the same

That would make it more easier to use it.

It already returns an error: EINVARG

UInfortunately, the same error code is used for many other errors that are checked in kern/kern_drvctl.c so it is difficult to differentiate the specific error condition with explicitly checking the prop-list first.
