I'm guess you mean this for memory access?  Have you thought about accepting
the resource type so you can do:

        bus_get_bus_tag(dev, SYS_RES_MEMORY);


        bus_get_bus_tag(dev, SYS_RES_IOPORT);

I would also be inclined to call it 'bus_get_bus_space_tag()' since it is
returning a bus_space tag.  "bus tag" might too generic of a name.  In
general though it seems to be a workaround for not wanting to allocate an
actual resource with bus_alloc_resource() and then using
bus_activate_resource() to obtain a valid (tag, handle) tuple?
