    You're right, that is a race. And is due to the historical fact that
    usb_register() used to also register the fops structure at the same
    time. Now that the functions are split apart, the call to
    usb_register_dev() should be done at the same place as the call to
    devfs_register(). Patches gladly accepted :)

    thanks,
