Oh, nice....

## devfs rule -s 10 add path cuaU0 mode 666
## devfs rule showsets
10

but then again:
## devfs rule add path cuaU0 mode 666
devfs rule: ioctl DEVFSIO_RADD: Input/output error

=> there is no predefined default ruleset
   (man page should state this fact besides the '-s' option)


## devfs ruleset 10
## devfs rule add path cuaU0 mode 666
## devfs rule show
100 path cuaU0 mode 666
200 path cuaU0 mode 666

I'm getting closer...
