Apparently this patch really stops the kernel panic. BUT there seems to
be a problem with devfs, when reattaching the usb hub / devices.
Permissions set in /etc/devfs.conf do not take effect any more. Even
worse, if you do a ls -l /dev, then all devices show permissions like '0'.
My System is a 5.3-BETA6 built yesterday.
So maybe your concern is right in some way... hopefully this is gonna be
fixed in 5.3-RELEASE!?
