Note that relying on a wakeup from your own code is not safe if you expect fdc 
to be a module since you could wakeup the thread doing the kldunload (and 
thus detach) and then be interrupted for an interrupt and it could unmap the 
memory backing that function before you get a chance to run again resulting 
in a panic.  There is a special wakeup on the proc pointer in exit1() for 
kthreads to handle this case.  I should likely move that into kthread_exit() 
however (which wouldn't be a functional change as far as you are concerned).
