I couldn't find any historic reason for this, so I am assuming that this is a
kludge to work-around inconsistent return values in various USB "newbus" probe
routines.

Please see here my attempt at cleaning up the basics:

Reviews and testing are welcome.

P.S.
A side-effect of this patch is removal of a minor annoyance in a form of the
following message:
Unknown USB device: vendor <> product <> bus <>
The message is produced by devd almost any time anything is connected via USB
thanks to (1) a nomatch USB entry in the default devd.conf; (2) use_generic=0
probing pass in USB.
