How about supplying the patch you apply to libusb, one change per
patch with the explanation for each change. I know I'll happily merge
them in Mandriva libusb package.

I'm not even sure that the Mandriva libusb is based on the same
release that I'm using (0.1.12), and not a CVS snapshot instead.
I'd need to at least know this, to be able to consider it.

It still doesn't solve the basic problem though. If Mandriver
is tracking upstream libusb changes, then I suspect it's
far too easy for something to break, and I doubt anyone
from Mandriver is going to be running the regression
tests against all the color instruments.
(My experience with USB is that it rarely "just works".
 Many instruments need some tweak to get them to function.)
