No.  that's not the case.  usb2_foo vs usb_foo in the kernel config
files only affects what files config brings in, and we can easily tell
it to bring the right ones in w/o any symbol issues.

I'd leave everything else where it is now in the source tree.  The
rename is fairly trivial.  Do people want me to float a patch?
