It appears there is a minor bug in the kernel regarding this field. See


Should work now.

Thanks for the quick response and fix

How far back does the problem reach ?

I think the IOCTL never worked except returning no path (0) like you

Ok, thanks

Another observation around the cross-platform use of libusb20_dev_get_port_path() and libusb_get_port_numbers():

On FreeBSD it seems that one needs to perform the respective usb open calls for the device before the two calls above succeeds without an negative error code.

Whereas the usb open calls does not seem to be needed with the linux impl of libusb.

Different behaviour between libusb on FreeBSD and linux creates a compatibility problems where linux-maintained programs accessing libusb20_dev_get_port_path() and libusb_get_port_numbers() will fail on FreeBSD but works on linux. (I've just spent some hours with such program) :-)

I've looked through the available documentation without finding anything substantial - and hence I do not know which one is "right".
