    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.
