Re: pcidevs added, but support not added (Broadcom BCM4318 AirForce One 54g revision 0x02)

See PR 34289:

I have on NetBSD/amd64 4.99.67 the following:

vendor 0x14e4 product 0x4318 (miscellaneous network, revision 0x02) at
pci2 dev 2 function 0 not configured

It looks like dmesg output has changed a lot as now it shows vendor and
product number instead of name again.

Maybe we just removed PCIVERBOSE?   :)

But what I am curious about: why are entries added to pcidevs if the
support is not added?

To help identify those devices that need drivers?
