Comment (by martyman99999 at yahoo.com):

 Good idea.  As it happens I just yesterday successfully came up on udev
 092, with libusb 0.1.12, and usbfs removed from the kernel.  The rule

 SUBSYSTEM=="usb_device", PROGRAM="/bin/sh -c 'K=%k; K=$${K#usbdev}; printf
 bus/usb/%%03i/%%03i $${K%%%%.*} $${K#*.}'", MODE="0644", NAME="%c"

 that is suggested in udev-092 works well.  The mode 644 is needed for
 lsusb to display anything when it is not root.
