I think I've found my problem.  The kernel configuration really needs
the line marked "required", which builds support for the USB bus:
"device usb".  Except this line, every usb related item is a "nodevice"
now.  The USB2 modules needed are kldload'ed in boot/loader.conf from
the USB-stick, and this really works.

Hans Petter:  although I am not sure if my USB-stick needs it, the
kernel was built using your patch.  So the least I can say about it:  It
doesn't hurt, and it might sure help with more restive devices.
