30Hrs, and no reply
Nobody is answering your question because you are not giving us enough information (And sometimes we cannot be bothered even to point this out yet AGAIN).
What is this mysterious "device"? I am guessing a "Free Pr0n Fast, USB dongle", in which case I am not patching my
kernel with any code they may be offering!
Why did the kernel need to be patched?
Would you like to offer us some of the links you have been following, or do you expect us to guess these / start searching from scratch?
What is your USB rule?
Why did you choose to have it "processed early on"?
I am reluctant to post pages of possibly irrelevant dmesg or udevinfo output
Why so? People have posted PAGES of (mostly useless) information here before. If you feel guilty about cluttering up LQ's servers with pages of text, you could post it somewhere like here: http://rafb.net/paste/
and give us a link to it.
Go ahead and post what you consider to be the relevant information, and I expect someone'll help. Maybe not myself, as I am still struggling with udev rules, but will watch this thread's progress.
