bus_generic_probe() is wrong I think

If we are going to support having multiple driver's for a given device
which is a bus (like we do now for PCI busses and like I am doing for
this concept of a system buson i386) then I think that bus devices do
not need to go identify child devices until after they have won the
probe and are being attached.  Thus, I'm ending up calling
bus_generic_probe() in my attach routines instead of my probe routines.
Does this make sense or am I missing something?  I at least have to do
this in the system bus case here for the same reasons that when I added
another PCI bus driver, I had to change the PCI drivers to add children
devices (equivalent of doing an identify) during attach() time and not
during probe() time.
