So usb-discover is not working then? It should load hid (it's not called
usbhid in 2.4) when it runs, unconditionally, assuming there is a
/proc/bus/pci/devices. Don't you have that file?

Until today when Kamion put it back in, we didn't have usb-discover on
2.6 images, relying on just udev to load usb stuff for 2.6. It sounds
like udev is not working on your hardware; maybe you need to file a bug
on udev? 

I'm also interested in whether Kamion's change of adding usb-discover
back to the 2.6 images fixed the issue for you, since based on what you
said about 2.4 it seems usb-discover is also not working on your

BTW: What geode hardware exactly is it?
