Note that those probes happen for specific buses rather than for specific
drivers. The routine that does this currently is static
(devclass_driver_added() in sys/kern/subr_bus.c). What specific problem are
you trying to solve? You might be able to use BUS_DRIVER_ADDED() or
device_probe_and_attach() to achieve what you are trying to do.
