DEVICE_SET_DESC(9) FreeBSD Kernel Developer's Manual DEVICE_SET_DESC(9)

device_set_desc, device_set_desc_copy, device_get_desc
access the description of a device

#include <sys/param.h>
#include <sys/bus.h>
void
device_set_desc(device_t dev, const char *desc);
void
device_set_desc_copy(device_t dev, const char *desc);
const char *
device_get_desc(device_t dev);

Manipulate the verbose description of a device. This description (if present) is printed as part of the message when it is attached during autoconfiguration. The variation device_set_desc_copy() is used to set the description if the string passed is a temporary buffer which will be overwritten. In this case, the system will copy the string, otherwise the pointer passed will be used directly.
