I think it's a wrong practice to have NetBSD device configuration
tree literally applied to do whole initialization.  In specific, it's too
problematic to have clean/bright/smart/clever i2c "bus" device driver just
for read/write NV values or RTC manipulation.  It's off-focus to "practice
NetBSD" in that way, I believe in.  Having bus illusion to do such the
simple task in very embryonic stage is dogmatic.  Similar story would be
applied for com_cn_attach() woe (indeed they are obstacles for easy
porting and spoiling for many NetBSD instances)
