The things I do as a public service, I don't even have the damn Huey

Actually (to put it frankly), I'm amazed that this exceptions list is
compiled into the driver. I would have thought that such a list should
at least be in a configuration file that an installed application can
add or delete, if not something more sophisticated. What will happen if the
HID driver is fixed to allow arbitrary messages, and I want to switch
back to using it rather than libusb ?

And the question still remains as to why usb_detach_kernel_driver_np()
works fine on some systems (ie. the one I'm testing on), and not (apparently)
