Heh, this will again change the behaviour under virtualization hosts
that emulate this hardware. Sometime before 7.0 the addition of this
hint caused all leX devices to be renamed le(X+1) because le0 was
taken and disabled. Restoring this will cause the same thing in
reverse. Unless someone actually has this hardware (as opposed to its
emulation) and needs the hint for something, I'd suggest these
particular lines be removed before 8.0 to restore the original
behaviour quickly. Obviously, they cannot be MFC-ed to 7-STABLE
