NAME

     device_set_desc, device_set_desc_copy, device_get_desc — access the description of a device

SYNOPSIS

     #include <sys/param.h>
     #include <sys/bus.h>

     void
     device_set_desc(device_t dev, const char *desc);

     void
     device_set_desc_copy(device_t dev, const char *desc);

     const char *
     device_get_desc(device_t dev);

DESCRIPTION

     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.
