device_set_desc, device_set_desc_copy, device_get_desc -- access the
description of a device
device_set_desc(device_t dev, const char *desc);
device_set_desc_copy(device_t dev, const char *desc);
const char *
Manipulate the verbose description of a device. This description (if
present) is printed as part of the message when it is attached during
autoconfiguration. The variation device_set_desc_copy() is used to set
the description if the string passed is a temporary buffer which will be
overwritten. In this case, the system will copy the string, otherwise
the pointer passed will be used directly.
