: Good idea, I'll make that change tonight. The code I committed this
: morning returns ENXIO for them so probe will get called multiple times.
: Hmm, this may be more difficult than I first thought since some of the
: internal routines walk all devices in the devclass, operating on their
: resources. This change would require that code to have an extra case,
: "device here but not active". Right now it assumes that if the device is
: probed/attached, it is usable.
The device is already there. All the device_disable() would do would
keep it from being probed again.
