As a compromise, we might change the default to enable it only for
devices with drivers in the kernel. That would be a kind of whitelist.
Yeah, I'm a bit leary of adding this to our kernel just yet, it's still
not quite stable on all devices because other operating systems do not
do this and hence, a lot of devices are broken with it :(
Yes, on the other hand, something needs to be done about the case
of not using USB. I'd activate it only for the hub driver.
