However, I found out there's was a difference between a standalone
uscanner module and one compiled in the kernel.

Standalone module:
     - original -> nothing
     - patched -> nothing
Note that loading module doesn't rescan devices. You have to unplug and
plug again the device to rescanning happen.
That sucks.  We should do that, or at least operate on the previously
detected devices.
I think USB devices are different than PCI/cardbus devices;
Unrecognized devices are taken by ugen.

Then devices should be probed and if there is a better match than ugen and if the ugen device is not open, it should be detached from ugen and attached to the new driver. Do you think this would be possible?
