    etc/devd: recognize wireless network adapters
    Extend default devd(8) configuration to recognize wireless network
    adapters, and automatically create child wlanX interfaces on attach.
    Interfaces are created either according to rc.conf(5) or, in case
    particular wireless device is not configured there, first unused
    wlan is created for it.
    Note: newly created wlan interface is not automatically brought up
    and connected to any network. If such behaviour is desired, both
    dhcpcd(8) and wpa_supplicant(8) (in interface matching mode) have to
    be running (dhcpcd_enable and wpa_supplicant_enable in rc.conf(5)).
    Discussed with: Sascha Wildner
