No. That's not the real problem here. The real problem here is that
uhub doesn't implement the driver_added callback correctly. The ugen
issue, while interesting, can be overcome by not having ugen in the
When ugen is in the kernel, we do need to do the rebid thing in
newbus, which we don't do, but there's little point in fixing one w/o
fixing the other.
