Bringing back to the list for resolution.

The ueN (axe based) devices were not quite up yet on this system when the
renaming script was run. I've updated (on github) the script to wait for
the requested devices to appear (with configurable timeout), as well as
added notes regarding making sure the drivers for the devices you wish to
rename are either compiled in, or loaded via loader.conf, such that we
aren't dependent upon devd to do so.

I'd love some feedback on the script if anyone else has a use case for it /
wants to kick the tires, and then I'll file a PR to add to ports.
