: print the line, since John is correct about having informational and

I think that's too ugly to contemplate... One of the main reasons it
is done in the parent bus now is that too many drivers got it wrong,
or had different notions of what they thought "right" output should
: An alternative might be to add magic to device_printf() so that anything
: printed through it gets buffered and delayed until after the attach
: routine completes (successfully or not). Once it completes, the
: device info line gets printed out with the actual resources (subject to
: what Warner is saying), and then all of the buffered device_printfs get
: dumped out.
I'm not sure this is much better.
Another problem with doing after rather than before is hangs. Right
now if the fxp driver is wedging my system on attach, I get to see the
fxp driver's dmesg line as the last thing before the wedge. If we
move to after, or driver prints, this line wouldn't appear.
Another option would be to omit resources entirely and go to a two
line dmesg. First line would be location, second line would be
resources (maybe hidden under bootverbose).
