Hardware detection does not detect the USB ports

Description of problem:
System: HP DL360 G4
OS: RHEL 4 AS, IA32 & X86_64, Beta 2
Test Kit: rhr2-rhel4-0.9-14.9b.noarch.rpm
Running the test kit seperately. Not using iSpec.
Problem: After running hardware dectection, the test kit creates a
hardware.conf with a incorrect USB setting. On the DL360 G4, it
creates a line of "USB 0" even though the system has two USB ports.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Install RHEL 4 Beta 2
2. Install the beta test kit
3. Run pembroke, then run hardware detection.
Actual Results: Incorrect setting in hardware.conf
Expected Results: Hardware.conf should have a line of "USB 2" for
this particular server.
It should be prompting the user for the number of USB ports since
because of how USB works it's not actually possible to tell how many
physical ports there are (AFAIK).
Going forward; I think iSpec should establish that value.
When running hardware detection, it does not prompt for the number of
Yeah, it's not prompting under the 2.6 kernel because tests/USB is doing this:
if grep -q usbdevfs /proc/mounts; then
But under 2.6, the usb filesystem gets mounted as "usbfs":
/proc/bus/usb /proc/bus/usb usbfs rw 0 0
Still seeing this with rhr2-rhel4-0.9-14.9e.dummyrun.
