cam_get_device: resolve path links before parsing device nameHEADmain
The CAM subsystem uses bus:taget:lun tuple to address peripherals. But for convenience many userland programs such as camcontrol accept devices names such as da0. There is a libcam function, cam_open_device, to support that. It first calls cam_get_device() to parse the device name as a driver name and a unit (and handle some special device name prefixes) and then uses cam_lookup_pass() to find a matching pass device. This change extends cam_get_device() to apply realpath(3) to the device name before parsing it. This will allow to use tools such as camcontrol and smartctl with symbolic links that could be friendlier (more distinguished) names for devices. MFC after: 3 weeks Relnotes: maybe
