Hi Pascal,

There is a less intrusive way to handle this for any reasonably modern
2.6 kernel...  see the check_driver script in the Debian package.

It's called from udev when the device is plugged and if it is a wacom
tablet, it will repossess it from any other driver and bind it to the
wacom one.

We had a more brutal hack that did this for 2.4 too, but this method
is I believe the recommended one now (or at least supported without
further kernel patching since about 2.6.13-ish).
