There are 2 approaches to this:

(1) You can force a reconfiguration re-boot, which means you don't need
    to access the prom:

        # touch /reconfigure
        # init 6

(2) Or you can do a "live" reconfiguration, requiring no reboot, which is
    what I wanted:

        # script to do live reconfiguration of device drivers
