I was wrong about being able to do this in userland; devd doesn't have
the device name, and devfs doesn't have enough information to identify
the disk as being bogus (as well as not currently having a mechanism to
do anything to the device except ownership/permissions/etc.).

So I guess a quirk would be the best way to do it, and I don't see any
existing functionality that even resembles this.  Is this something that
would be worth my while to create? 

I wouldn't mind writing it if it were generally useful, but I don't know
for a fact that anyone else would want to use it. A scheme flexible
enough to have a hope of working with future devices would be
substantially more complicated than I need for my own purposes, so I'd
like to know if anyone else would want it also.
