It might, but it's kinda hairy. I've not really thought about what it
would take to do that.
and, of course, that wouldn't solve the problem for any of the _other_
areas that use the calls like this... 8-)

oh, you wish it were that. 8-)
foo0 at bar0 loc X loc Y: some device info\n
A: printed by generic autoconfig code.
P: printed by parent device 'print' function if any.
D: printed by child device attach function.
then consider the messages you get when you have an unconfigured
device on a direct config bus:
usefuldevicename at bar0 loc X loc Y not configured\n
same meanings as above (and of course the " not configured\n") bit
won't get printed if there's no parent device print function.
