Why doesn't ppc(4) check non-ENXIO failures during probe?

Your patch would break hinted ppc devices.  ENXIO means that the device_t 
being probed has an ISA PNP ID, but it does not match any of the IDs in the 
list.  ENONET means that the device_t does not have an ISA ID at all.  For the 
isa bus that means it was explicitly created via a set of ppc.X hints.
