Bug Description

Description: Ubuntu 13.10
Release: 13.10
usbutils:
  Installed : 1:007-2
----------------------------
I was configuring a game controller to work with xboxdrv.
So I first executed lsusb with the device connected directly on a pc usb port :

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0810:0003 Personal Communication Systems, Inc. PlayStation Gamepad
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 046d:c52b Logitech, Inc. Unifying Receiver
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 1a40:0101 Terminus Technology Inc. 4-Port HUB
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

The controller appears as 'Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0810:0003 Personal Communication Systems, Inc. PlayStation Gamepad'

Then when I execute lsusb whit the device connected through an external usb hub :

Bus 002 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0810:0003 Personal Communication Systems, Inc. Batoh Device / PlayStation 3 Controller
Bus 001 Device 002: ID 8087:0024 Intel Corp. Integrated Rate Matching Hub
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0003 Linux Foundation 3.0 root hub
Bus 003 Device 003: ID 046d:c52b Logitech, Inc. Unifying Receiver
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 1a40:0101 Terminus Technology Inc. 4-Port HUB
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 1d6b:0002 Linux Foundation 2.0 root hub

The controller appears as 'Bus 001 Device 006: ID 0810:0003 Personal Communication Systems, Inc. Batoh Device / PlayStation 3 Controller'

This last id is the one know by xboxdrv and I was able to configure the controller.

Any idea about this behaviour ?

I'm also having weird problems with "1a40:0101 Terminus Technology Inc. 4-Port HUB" when daisy chained through "2109:0812 VIA Labs Inc. USB 3.0 - 4 port hub" but I'm still in the fact gathering stage with lsbusb, usb-devices, udevadm info, udevadm monitor, udevadm export-db, lspci, gedit /var/log/kern.log commands and .rules files. It's been a fascinating 2 weeks of hobby hours consumption.
