Hmm, that is a bit tricky, right -- and I do not think having a mmap
operation on a filedesc makes sense, it would rather be bound to the
underlying vnode associated to a data file :/

After a quick look at man pages, there is effectively cdevvp(9) to get a
vnode for a char device, and it could be used further through
VOP_MMAP(), but it has nothing to do with fdes...
