Like I said this did not work with 2.6.24-rc1 (latest git). My distro
(Ubuntu 7.10) kernel 2.6.22-10 also has the same behavior.

Ok, I failed to imagine the hardware makers' stupidity :) - In the case
that you mentioned I agree that there is little that can be done based on
device IDs. I'll check out subsequent releases to see if it gets fixed
based on hardware characteristics (rt2500usb unloading and requesting the
right one in my case for example).

Thanks
