  Allow setting usb storage device ID parameters

Status in QEMU:

Bug description:
  Some stubborn software requires certain VID/PID/Serial to authenticate
  and refuses to start in emulation. This poses a problem with
  unsupported programs which often require keeping an ancient hardware
  praying that the USB stick will not die before the (often defunct)
  company making it.

  Virtualizing such environment is desired. However, QEMU doesn't allow
  setting VID/PID/Serial/Name of emulated USB devices, but instead uses
  hardcoded values:

  This request (including a patch) was already made in 2015 on the list
  but never got any response: https://lists.nongnu.org/archive/html

  WDYT of adding such functionality?
