Where's the gain in using symbolic names that contain the vendor and

Preference order, probing and attachment in NetBSD's autoconfigure 
framework with symbolic names aids debugging; consider having multiple 
drivers for one device (like em(4) and wm(4) in NetBSD), which makes it 
easier to share a database of applicable cards.
