The following line is missing in the GENERIC kernel for several platforms:

scsibus* at umass? channel ?

I have an external harddisk (using USB) which requires this configuration.
This is documented in scsibus(4) and the GENERIC kernel for e.g., alpha
includes it. If there are no reasons to exclude this line, it should be
added to the GENERIC kernel for all platforms or at least i386. If
kernel size is the reason, it would be nice to have it at least
commented out there because it might not be as easy to find the necessary
option otherwise.
