UAS driver on USB 2.0 Hardware?

I noticed today that the kernel was using the uas driver for usb transfers on my netbook. But the netbook only has USB 2, so I was wondering how this was possible. Isn't uas only for USB 3?

I don't know if what you're seeing is a bug or not, but you should probably unload and blacklist uas to prevent hangs and/or data corruption, as the driver is buggy and unstable, and currently marked as broken.
