No. Or maybe yes.
We'll never be able to have multiple drivers attach to the same
endpoint any more than you can have multiple drivers attach to the
serial port at 0x3f8. However, we can today have multiple drivers
attach to the different configs that are presented by the usb device.
too bad that has turned out in practice not to be too useful. Also,
one can write a 'bus' driver that allows multiple subdrivers to
attach. We do that already with uhub.
