vendor class?  We have a macro for that?

Almost everyone has a iProduct, right?  Why even test for that?

usb_string() should handle a 0 string, right?

Just to make it a bit easier to follow, how about you do the
usb_string() call in the if statment, and then compare the string and
then, if that matches you do:

Well, actually, dev_info?  I guess so, but do you really want to see
this message every time?
