One thing I would like to see on each and every device driver is a
common IOCTL which will return what _type_ of device it is, a device
specific name, unit number, etc.  This could also be extended into
a way of retreiving all known devices, since it could extract the
data is knows about from the internal softc and put it into a
"well known" form or something...
