DESCRIPTION
     Manipulate	the verbose description	of a device.  This description (if
     present) is printed as part of the	message	when it	is attached during au-
     toconfiguration.  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.
