that's up to the driver author to decide.

so far, what I think I'll do is give each devclass its own context and
node, and place each device's node below the devclass's node, so you

you can't have the driver be the parent, because some devices have no
driver (but they all have a class), and I want to use dev.fxp.fxp0
instead of dev.fxp.0 on the off chance that there might be multiple
devices in a class with the same unit number but different names.
