"ethXX which interferes with a service". It should not.

True.  But as I said: The cdc_ether driver use the device ID list for
blacklisting. This is an implementation detail specific to this driver.
It will use the .driver_info field as a pointer to usbnet specific data.
But if the field is 0, then the entry becomes a blacklist entry instead.

Dynamically added entries have all fields set to 0 by default, and will
also be tried before the built-in entries (since v3.15). So adding a
dynamic entry to the cdc_ether driver means adding a blacklist entry
(Unless you explicitly reference an existing entry for inheritance).

Try it.
