I would like to enfavor that it is being named "usb" at some point. We do
not want to keep names like rcNG while at some point it's the defacto
standard right? Also names like USB2 tell people that there might be a
USB1 as well, which we no longer ship at some point.

Please name it "usb_*".

In addition; there is a request from Warner (if I remember correctly);
which I do share; there is a manual regeneration needed if you add
something to usbdevs, please make sure that that goes automatically like
"usb1" does at the moment.
