Not sure if you want to do this for mfi_disk.c, etc.?  Logical disks in
mfi(4) have an optional volume name for example (the BIOS typically fills it
in with "RAID 5" or some such when you create a volume in the BIOS) that
might be worth exporting as the description for mfidX devices.

Not sure about other disk devices such as twed.
