  Modified files:
    share/man/man9       device_get_softc.9 
  - Clarify when the softc is allocated.  It is allocated when a device is
    probed and attached, not on the first call to device_get_softc().
  - Add a cross reference to DEVICE_PROBE regarding the caveats of using the
    softc in a driver's probe routine.
  - Fix a grammar bogon.
