Kudzu seems unable to re-detect my USB controller.

I had disabled USB in my BIOS, and allowed Kudzu to remove the 
configuration.  Turned out I didn't need to disable the USB, so I turned 
it back on.  Kudzu would not retect the USB settings.

The hwconf file seemed to still have USB settings in it, however the 
driver field was "disabled" and I couldn't figure out how to fix it by 

On a related note, I expected the --bus flag to just check for things on 
that bus.  Not "check this bus, and remove everything else from hwconf."

Reproducible: Didn't try
Steps to Reproduce:
1.  Install seawolf w/ USB on
2.  Turn off USB, allow kudzu to remove controllers
3.  Turn USB on

Adding usb to /etc/modules.conf and insmoding modules by hand didn't seem 
to help Kudzu detect the USB hardware.  Even after deleting the disabled 
USB sections from the hwconf.

What does lspci -v say after you've re-enabled it?
