Hey Everyone,

My USB scanner works only via ugen(4) (i.e. not with uscanner(4)), but 
uscanner insists on attaching anyway. 

Is there any way to prevent uscanner attaching? I don't think it's 
possible to un-declare a config entry, so I can't use GENERIC.local
to remove it from the kernel. Obviously, I can use a customized 
kernel, but that is a PITA.

Failing that, what do people think of commenting out uscanner in 
GENERIC? Even it's manual page isn't very posistive about it.
