Hmmm, I remember seeing this thread a while ago. This means re-compiling and installing the kernel. The reason I have not done that, yet, is I have the module loaded. An I to believe the module probed fails, and compiled into the kernel it works???
I did find another issue. In the online doc, it states
--enable-usb Turns on generation of the USB driver code. By default this is disabled.
It looks to me as if usb is not the default when you compile the daemon. I have since re-compiled the kernel with this option turned on; ./configure --enable-usb then make, and make install.
I'm testing that now, so far, no difference.
