So it is. I was mistaken because it was late at night, and I read this
entry in the to-do list:

+ * -- use serial numbers to hook onto same hosts (same minor) after
disconnect

That feature is present in usb-storage for 2.4 but not 2.6, so I assumed
there would be no reason to add it to ub for 2.6 either.
