Nobody said anything about a short to come release. I have no problem to
suspend the patch until after this release. But then usb should stay as
untouched as possible.

The reason was a simple thougth of mine: a linux user could probably
better understand bus:device (it is something which he gets displayed
sometimes from libusb: libusb:001:002) but I m really open to change it
to whatever string you want. A other possibility is that we introduce
something like hostid:VID:PID. I can only tell you that I do not
completely like the old notation. (But as I said before, no hard
feelings about that, it is changed in less than a minute)

The reason for the bcdUSB revision is even simpler. A person who has
only used USB has no idea what full speed or lowspeed does mean. If you
look through the code you will notice that the speed setting was
determined by bcdUSB and so I thougth it may be better to display it. As
most people have a idea what USB 1.0, 1.1 or 2.0 means.

With kind regards,
