   ### locating a softc
   This locates a device's softc using it's `cfdriver_t` (e.g. `&mainbus_cd`, `&cpu_cd`) and its "device unit" (e.g. the `0` in `mainbus0`).

   ### locating structure members
   This uses [[!template id=man name="gdb" section="1"]] and a kernel with debugging symbols to find the offset to a element in a structure.
   
       $ gdb netbsd.gdb
       ...
       (gdb) print &((struct ohci_softc *)0)->iot
       $3 = (bus_space_tag_t *) 0x478
       (gdb) print &((struct ohci_softc *)0)->ioh
       $4 = (bus_space_handle_t *) 0x480
   
   ### peeking at mapped registers
   
       db{0}> call bus_space_read_4(*(ffff800045fb2008+478), *(ffff800045fb2008+480), 0)

 ### Memory-mapped PCI config access on x86  ### Memory-mapped PCI config access on x86
 Still need to figure out how pcitag_t will work for a 3rd mode that can't be switched on until after ACPI is initialized.  Needs cleanup, and maybe some more validation of MCFG tables.
 Existing code I have assumes that no tags are generated until mmconf is turned on, which is not a reasonable assumption to make.  
   ### Toshiba ACPI LCD backlight driver
   Loosly based on [[!template id=man name="vald" section="4"]]. Currently attaches to `TOS1900`/`VALZ`, but doesn't interact with this device.
   This driver should really attach to `\_SB.PCI0.GFX0.LCD` or
   `\_SB.PCI0.PEGP.VGA.LCD`, which are the devices that get notified of
   brightness button pushes, and contain the `_BCL`, `_BCM`, and `_BQC`
   methods that access the brightness adjustment function.
   Such an attachment does not appear to be possible (or at the very least, easy)
   at present.
