That depends. Opinions on this change about every week. During even
weeks, the "kernel driver makes the device useful" approach is chosen.
During odd weeks, the "we need userspace crap like usb_modeswitch to make

No, the kernel developers responsible for this driver, and the
usb-storage driver have a very clear approach, that does not change
