 I guess it will be necessary to remove a sysctl oid from a parent
 sysctl tree before destroying ucom structures.
 It's would be better to do in ucom_detach() but now there is no a
 pointer to a parent device structure from there.
 Now all drivers that use ucom pass a pointer to parent softc structure
 to ucom_attach().
 Is there any reason for this?
 May be it's would be more useful to pass a pointer to a parent device

 I've got a gps receiver and a mobile phone that supported by the umodem driver.
 I can attach its in any order.
 So I use sysctl to generate gpsd and ppp configs with appropriate
 values of serial port.
