Not much differences in reality. I believe it is a document bug for the

Both old libusb-0.1 code and libusb-1.0 use the same IOCTL under Linux
and the behavior should be similar.

Please refer to the following code listing and take note even though
the name of the IOCTL is different but they are the same if you
look at the defines.

On the other hand, libusb-win32's usb_reset will cause re-enumeration.

>From libusb-0.1.12 source (linux.c)
int usb_reset(usb_dev_handle *dev)
  int ret;

  ret = ioctl(dev->fd, IOCTL_USB_RESET, NULL);
  if (ret)
     USB_ERROR_STR(-errno, "could not reset: %s", strerror(errno));

  return 0;
