Dear "Fbsd1" (Joe Barbish?),
Hans meant that this is not an issue with USB kernel driver and he is totally
correct. usb@ assignment is for bugs with kernel USB driver only.
BTW, bootloader doesn't have any explicit knowledge of USB either, it uses BIOS
interface and depends on BIOS USB emulation.
I think that Hans can't change the PR assignment.
So this message is mostly for Mark :-)
