I think an unusual situation like that deserves a comment that
explains that the device is about to disconnect / reconnect, so
reading status is not necessary.

I am also concerned about the error of using &bcbw instead of bcbw.  I
doubt this code would have worked with that typo in place.  How was
this patch tested?

Also, the dongles_pid function is really just a different
implementation of the unusual_devs.h table.  I think that it is much
easier for people to add new entries to the table, rather than edit
your code, when new dongles are released.  BUT, your code includes
many more PIDs than the table did.  Again, how was this tested for the
new PIDs covered?  At a minimum, some comment in dongles_pid is
required to highlight this area of code for possible future expansion
as new devices are released.
