Ick, what?

Did you run this patch through scripts/checkpatch.pl?

As you didn't change the function arguments, just leave the long line
alone, but even if you did change it, the '{' has to be on the next line
by itself.  See Documentation/CodingStyle for details.

In thinking about this a bit more, don't you also want to check the
vendor and product id?  You can't always be sure about the string of any
old device, right?
