The general principle is that GENERIC should contain all drivers that
are supposed to work, and should list, commented-out, drivers that
might work or might be useful if they did work. So, I guess it should
be added commented out to every GENERIC that includes the assorted usb
devices, and uncommented where it's been tested...

Plus, for i386, it should be in ALL (uncommented) if it compiles.  :)
