I've noticed some drivers have started to export stats via sysctls in
the dev tree.  Maybe that's where it should go?

I've used it for cbb, for example, to report things that are usually
hidden behind bootverbose (more could be useful here):

dev.cbb.1.pribus: 6
dev.cbb.1.secbus: 7
dev.cbb.1.subbus: 7

the code is real simple in the init routine to hook up these sysctl to
a softc variable...
