    You know, now that I think back on it, it may be that the Set-Config
    really does have to come after the magic command. Perhaps it triggers
    the changeover. In which case the subroutine should look like this:

    static int iphone_probe(struct usb_interface *intf,
    const struct usb_device_id *id)
    struct usb_device *udev = interface_to_usbdev(intf);
    int rc;

    if (udev->actconfig->desc.bConfigurationValue != 3) {
    dbg(&udev->dev, "Sending magic comand\n");
    rc = usb_control_msg(udev, usb_sndctrlpipe(udev, 0),
    0x6400, 0, NULL, 0, 1000);
    if (rc)
    dev_err(&udev->dev, "Command failed: %d\n", rc);
    else {
    dbg(&udev->dev, "Calling set_configuration\n");
    rc = usb_driver_set_configuration(udev, 3);
    if (rc)
    dev_err(&udev->dev, "Set-Config failed: %d\n",

    /* we don't really want to bind to the device, userspace programs can
    * handle the syncing just fine, so get outta here. */
    return -ENODEV;

    However Oliver's point is well taken. This simple sort of manipulation
    could easily be done by a user program, started up by udev.
