Thanks for the response.  Did you have a problem with "opt_usbverbose.h"?  I 
replaced the existing "usb_subr.c" with the patched version and have not 
been able to successfully compile the new kernel using it seemly due to 
"opt_usbverbose.h" not being found.

I had the same problem with a "nano".

I had many difficulties to find a way to solve it too. Finally this link
helped me

I patched /usr/src/sys/dev/usb/usb_subr.c as described, compiled my
kernel again and it works...

I'm not sure that it's the right way but it works...
