Thanks for the feedback!
I've cleaned up the patch so that
* sysctl nodes are removed on detach.
* The new firmware infrastructure from FreeBSD is used.
This also needs a small bugfix in subr_firmware.c to avoid a panic
(see my mail on @bugs).
Note, that you now need to build and load a firmware kernel module
for iwi to work.
I'm uncertain how this should be automated. I think there might be
licensing issues if we would ship the Intel firmware.
* devfs_clone_bitmap_*() functions are used for unique number
