It would be great to have these around in devd.

Another thing that is entirely missing (even as a variable) appears to
be a pccard's "function_type".  You can access "function" (but that's
merely a slot #, thus not very useful for decisions in devd), but you
could not e.g. try doing certain things for all pccard network

But at least, based on the events that have been logged by my newly
inserted "nomatch" statements, I could then proceed, and add specific
"nomatch" entries for a number of devices to kldload the respective
drivers.  Are there any ideas about collecting all these device data
into a common database so all FreeBSD developers could share them with
their users, something like the old pccard.conf used to do?

Never trust an operating system you don't have sources for. ;-)
