This machine have a GENERIC kernel:
tingo at kg-work2$ uname -a
FreeBSD kg-work2.kg4.no 7.0-STABLE FreeBSD 7.0-STABLE #0: Mon Jul 21 20:40:31 CEST 2008     root at kg-work2.kg4.no:/usr/obj/usr/src/sys/GENERIC  i386

And it seems like udbp is commented out in GENERIC:
tingo at kg-work2$ grep udbp /sys/i386/conf/GENERIC
#device		udbp		# USB Double Bulk Pipe devices

So it might be something else. usb controller / chipset, or whatever.
BTW, for completeness, this machine is a Dell OptiPlex SX270[1].
