The usb manual (do you know, you're the first person who's even so much
as hinted that such a thing exists!) tells me that the uhub device is
present by default. "device uhub" in my kernel config file rendered it

The umass manual hinted that "device pass" was needed, but that didn't
fix the problem. Nor did running usbd before plugging the USB stick in.
