Ahh, well that shows my ignorance for not having a scanner (or ever
using one in Linux) <G>
I am very surprised that this implementation ever got accepted into the
kernel (accessing devices via /proc/bus/usb).
If that's the case, then the (relatively) simple solution is to not
bypass the walk of /proc/bus/usb in usb.rc just because /sys/bus/usb
exists, but rather to do them both.
