USB: snoop processes opening usbfs device files
Alan Stern [Mon, 6 Oct 2008 15:24:26 +0000 (11:24 -0400)]
This patch (as1148) adds a new "snoop" message to usbfs when a device
file is opened, identifying the process responsible.  This comes in
extremely handy when trying to determine which program is doing some
unwanted USB access.
