I don't know if a way to do this on a running system, but a (likely
horrible) way to pre-compile a list of drivers that support polling:
grep -r 'DEVICE_POLLING$' /usr/src/sys/dev | uniq
This won't give you results that you can automatically shove into a
script and have it magically work, but it will give you a general idea.
pluknet's idea to show the iface/driver capability bits is a good one.
