Does it look that much better?:

	if (usb_dev->descriptor.bDeviceClass == USB_CLASS_VENDOR_SPEC
			&& usb_string(usb_dev, usb_dev->descriptor.iProduct,
				buf, sizeof(buf)) > 0)
		if (!strcmp(buf, "USB NET CARD")) {
			dev_info(&intf->dev, "ignoring cx82310_eth device\n");
			return -ENODEV;
		}

I also found a bug in my first patch - usb_string() can return negative value 
which can cause problems when not checked for.
