DESCRIPTION

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.
