For example, the ucom driver is present in the GENERIC kernel in this way. My expectation was that "kldstat -v" would list it, if present, but it does not. A design flaw?
Sounds like a bug, but I'm not sure where..
Maybe ucom doesn't appear because it doesn't have a DRIVER_MODULE() declaration (because it isn't a driver).
