hi there,

a lot of people report issues where usbconfig doesn't show a vendor or device
name, although an usbdevs entry exists. i found a few replies to those reports
by hps@ stating that USB_VERBOSE needs to be enabled.

could anybody explain why? if that option needs to be enabled in order to see
vendor and device names in usbconfig how come that even without it i see most
of the vendor and device names with usbconfig:

ugen0.1: <UHCI root HUB Intel> at usbus0, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) 
pwr=SAVE
ugen1.1: <UHCI root HUB Intel> at usbus1, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) 
pwr=SAVE
ugen2.1: <UHCI root HUB Intel> at usbus2, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) 
pwr=SAVE
ugen3.1: <EHCI root HUB Intel> at usbus3, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) 
pwr=SAVE
ugen4.1: <UHCI root HUB Intel> at usbus4, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) 
pwr=SAVE
ugen5.1: <UHCI root HUB Intel> at usbus5, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) 
pwr=SAVE
ugen6.1: <UHCI root HUB Intel> at usbus6, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=FULL (12Mbps) 
pwr=SAVE
ugen7.1: <EHCI root HUB Intel> at usbus7, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH (480Mbps) 
pwr=SAVE
ugen3.2: <product 0x2514 vendor 0x0424> at usbus3, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=HIGH 
(480Mbps) pwr=SAVE
ugen1.2: <Dell USB Keyboard Dell> at usbus1, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=LOW (1.5Mbps) 
pwr=ON
ugen1.3: <Razer 1600dpi Mouse Razer> at usbus1, cfg=0 md=HOST spd=LOW (1.5Mbps) 
pwr=ON

my guess would be that these devices are missing the iManufacturer and/or
iProduct string, but that's just a wild guess.

if that is the case wouldn't it be possible to check for a usbdevs entry in
case one of those strings don't exist and if there's an entry in usbdevs use it?

i think the option USB_VERBOSE is not really accurate in this particular case.
people who want usbconfig to output the vendor and product name actually want
less verbosity (i.e. no product/vendor hex ids).

cheers.
alex
