Default Why XXX_softc in BSD?

I'm reading autoconfiguration code in OpenBSD and see structs named XXX_softc which are based on struct device, but add more struct members. e.g. pcmcia_softc in
sys/dev/pcmcia/pcmciavar.h. Where does this name, "softc," come from? Is the c short for something? config? What's soft about it?
