Well, it's certainly up to them. Thanks for checking anyway. :-) I
just don't think allocating a page, marking the bits and finding the
first available is better than the other solution (which was already
there too). However, we need any fix merged soon as 3.3 seems to be
affected by this bug. Just plugging two USB dongles on my machine
gives me the duplicate name error from sysfs. :-/
