OTOH, it should probably only be a minor fix to get the type reported 
correctly. The first thing to check is extras/usb_id/usb_id.c in udev 
which seems to be what determines the output based on sysfs info.

The type looks to be determined by bInterfaceClass and bInterfaceSubClass
in /sys/bus/usb/devices/x-y:1.0/. The SubClass seems to be 5 instead of 8 
in your case.
The output of 'lsusb -v' (as root) will give you those values as well.

If so, the classification error looks to be in the kernel and should be 
traceable with full lsusb output for the device.
