 Hm, acpi_hp seems to be quite bad in newbus department.
 It doesn't have an identify method to create a device_t for its use and its 
 method would claim any device_t passed in.
 So, it doesn't have any actual provision to get probed/attached after acpi_wmi 
 it can potentially wrek havoc by claiming device_t which should be handled by 
 other driver.
 I guess that I "broke" this driver when I removed second pass of probe+attach 
 acpi bus children, but it is the driver that should be fixed.
