Actually, it could be done in the script too by parsing
/target/var/lib/usbutils/usb.ids (if available), but IMO that's
complicating things unnecessarily.
If you really need to know what a device is when working on an
installation issue, you can always search that file manually.
Anyway, I've committed my script and related changes.
