Thanks for improving on my commit. Your patch looks correct as far
as I can see, but rather complicated for what it does. Couldn't we
get the same end result simply by looping until opening /dev/usbN
Or alternatively, if we do spend the effort to walk the device tree,
we should use the information gained from that to full advantage by
issuing warnings about missing /dev/usbN device nodes rather than just
silently ignoring the affected controllers.
