With devfs, you just need to try opening the device and you'll get it if
it's not busy. You can also open /dev/tap and get an arbitrary one.
This is due to tun(4) style cloning code I committed recently. I'm not
actually sure this is the way we want to handle cloning hybrid devices,
but there is precident so I committed the patch. I think we may want to
move to a model were we use interface cloning rather then devfs cloning
because it will work in stable.
