Architecture: all
Machine: all

NetBSD's "kitchen sink" kernel config files should be including
sys/dev/usb/usbdevices.config to get support for all current USB drivers.
At the present time, adding a driver for a USB device requires that a
whole bunch of kernel config files be edited and committed.

Write a USB driver then edit dozens of kernel config files.

Find all the eligible kernel config files (I guess only those which have
PCI, since usbdevices.config assumes this). Replace all the USB entries

include "dev/usb/usbdevices.config" 

Problem solved.
