    The contents of /proc/bus/usb is the usbdevfs file system. It does not
    fit into the current /proc model, or discussion.

    It's only mounted at that location, for lack of a better place :)

    And no, "usbdevfs" has _nothing_ to do with "devfs", it was a bad name
    choice, in hindsight.
