Note that all these disk devices are not CAM devices, so CAM changing to
use new-bus wouldn't really matter one whit. They do all show up as 'DISK'
GEOM's however (I also hacked on a GEOM-based libdisk replacement at one
point, though probably less developed than Marcel's. I used libgeom to
discover DISK devices.) Given that disk_create() already hooks into GEOM,
that is probably the right way to discover disks in a generic fashion.
