>Description:
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.

>How-To-Repeat:
Write a USB driver then edit dozens of kernel config files.

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

include "dev/usb/usbdevices.config" 

Problem solved.
