    Its not that they just enable it. Its that it has side effects. I enable it to support
    one device - it then 'devnaps' other devices that usbstorage supports _much_
    better. Is there some way it could work in reverse. eg. let ub bind only if
    usbstorage does not, possibly making usbstorage a _little_ more conservative
    if ub is present?
