    Sorry for the delay, was away and am catching up on mail.

    Thanks to Andrey for the fix. Greg, did you want to add something
    else? Either way, please forward to Linus.

    Andrey: the reason everything is in there is I didn't know what Greg
    wanted. He OK'd it, but I'm happy for them to be trimmed, too.

    Subject: [PATCH][2.6.0-test9] prevent catch-all USB aliases in modules.alias
    From: Andrey Borzenkov
    Date: 2003-11-03 16:45:03

    visor.c defines one empty slot in USB ids table that can be filled in at
    runtime using module parameters. file2alias generates catch-all alias for it:

    alias usb:v*p*dl*dh*dc*dsc*dp*ic*isc*ip* visor

    patch adds the same sanity check as in depmod to scripts/file2alias.
