I have created an experimental version of USBD.SYS that will place attached devices under the corresponding hub they are attached to instead of placing them under the host controller they are attached to.
I think that makes it easier to determine where a device is plugged in. For example, if you use an external USB hub you will see the attached devices under "USB Hub Device_x.y.z" instead of under the host controller the external USB hub is attached to.
I think this logic also better follows the Windows logic.

Would anyone want to try out ? Unfortunately it will not work with the AN stack yet so you will need to (temporarily) install my 10.220 stack. If people prefer this I will try and convince AN to put it in their USBD.SYS.
It's not a big change to USBD.SYS and my HWMAN.DLL extension will still show the proper device names without any change !
