To be placed into kernel options file (/usr/src/sys/i386/conf/<host>) :
(The later enables timepps device /dev/pps0 for a parallel port;
The /dev/pps0 is conveniently named, it actually is a
timepps capture device, but for a parallel port (ppc/ppbus) ).
If some playing with device flags or interrupts is needed, it belongs
to /boot/device.hints, e.g.:
Man pages: SIO(4), PPC(4), PPBUS(4)

/boot/device.hints & man sio:
Meaning of flags:
0x00010 device is potential system console
0x00020 device is forced to become system console
