I think most interesting part (i.e. dynamic configuration) is not yet
merged to main tree of newconfig repository, because it is very early
The early stage of dynamic configuration part can be found on
Although the newconfig repository which itojun-san pointed out

dynamically from PCI BIOS. The author of the pcibios.c
(UCHIYAMA Yasushi <email@example.com> who is one of main developer of
dynamic configuration) made this to work with both FreeBSD and
NetBSD. Thus the pcibios.c should work with NetBSD with minimum
