Please help me get a better understanding: what exactly is a softc,
and how exactly is it supposed to be allocated, filled in, and used?

Is it supposed to be some place where all the state for a particular
instance of a device resides, or something like that?  What is the
ultimate prototype for all softc's?  Is there such a thing?
