Oh you better ask in the Linux kernel mailing list or the usb subsystem
mailing list. Fact is, from what I can see, is that usbfs/usbdevfs is
gone, and the usualy reason is that something has successfully been
moved from /proc to /sys. After all, USB has hardly to do anything with
processes. Too bad VMware does not seem to notice it.
