Well, devd.conf isn't exactly heavy on documentation, but I would think
that you can do something like:

attach 0 {
     device-name "da[0-9]+";
     action "chmod 755"; // or even
     action "/etc/rc.d/devfs start" // but it depends what you have in

Of course, others might be able to give you better suggestions, I have
not tried this, but only based it on the docs that I read and on

Hope this helps somewhat...
