idVendor and idProduct look good according to the output of usbconfig,
but whenever I try to refer to ddesc->idVendor (or anything else in that
structure) I get "error: dereferencing pointer to incomplete type".
This is what sent me looking through the includes for the actual type
Other than the usbconfig code that uses the LIBUSB20_DEVICE_DESC()
macro, is there any other example code out there that does what I'm
trying to do?
