Hello all -

I've mostly ported over the 'u3g(4)' modem driver from FreeBSD (enough  
to send this email woohoo) -
however, currently I have only hacked in the USB device ID for my  
particular gizmo* - reviewing this
driver and other misc. usb stuff it does look like FreeBSD has sprouted  
a 'usbdevs' infrastructure
a-la 'pcidevs' which we don't have -

As I'll either need to un-usbdevs the various device ID's, or add such  
an infrastructure to add
the remaining devices to the u3g driver, wondering what peoples takes  
are about adding this setup
so that various usb gizmos can be moved over to it in the future - seems  
like a good idea to me.

After that - time to upgrade my plan to unlimited data :D

Thoughts welcome

in case anyone is wondering


we've been un-usbdev'd since 3 1/2 years, see 99210bc.

Use the USB_DEVICE() macro in the driver (see other USB drivers).
