For most other classes of hardware device driver framework KPIs -- especially
things like PCI bus attachment, busdma, CAM, ifnet, and GEOM frameworks, our
MFC rules would strictly disallow this sort of change, on the grounds that it
is our KBI policy that we not break common classes of third-party device
drivers (i.e., require them to be recompiled). My suspicion is that we should
be applying the same rules to the USB framework -- however, I don't know if we
have any third-party USB device drivers?
(If we do, then this change should not have been MFC'd.)
