You can do that in NetBSD, if you like, too, in the kernel config file,
by wiring down the individual unit numbers to specific device instances.

However, NetBSD's autoconfiguration code supports device cloning, so we
use that by default, since it will find and assign unit numbers to all
device instances by default :-)
