Correct me if I'm wrong, but dosen't usbd just, as it says in the man page,
'supervise USB attach/detach'.  It dosen't have any device code (though, it
will load some kernel modules if required), it pretty much just starts and stops 

I totally agree that the USB code in 4.x is nasty, and the new stuff will be
better :)
