Subject[18/42] USB: update documentation for usbmon
3.1-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.

------------------
From: Alan Stern <stern@rowland.harvard.edu>

commit d8cae98cddd286e38db1724dda1b0e7b467f9237 upstream.

The documentation for usbmon is out of date; the usbfs "devices" file
now exists in /sys/kernel/debug/usb rather than /proc/bus/usb. This
patch (as1505) updates the documentation accordingly, and also
mentions that the necessary information can be found by running lsusb.

+"Bus=03" means it's bus 3. Alternatively, you can look at the output from
+"lsusb" and get the bus number from the appropriate line. Example:
