 Oh wait, I misread. So you say switching to another device is broken?
 Yes. This is indeed true. It is no longer possible to use the same snoop
 instance to switch to another device. It is documented in the snp(4)
 manpage, but watch(8) hasn't been updated accordingly.
 
 I'll write a patch for watch(8) one of these days to just reopen
 /dev/snp.
