That's right.  You can't affect the flag setting in your program; its 
value is determined by the kernel configuration procedure.

One possibility is to keep the flag set and remove the existing usbmon
code from the drivers/usb/mon directory, putting your own code there

However a better solution would be to convert your filter into a
userspace program rather than a kernel module, and then utilize the
existing binary usbmon interface instead of writing your own.
