I would rather have a method to allow probing busses in specific order.
There are other reasons to do this as well, and I have seen discussion
on the same.  In fact, there are very good reasons to control the probe
ordering on things like the ISA bus in general, since some driver probes
munch on other device's toes.

I believe FreeBSD has a priority-based scheme.  I propose we adopt
something like it.
