Description of problem:

When I want to add a physical USB device to the guest, the virt-manager presents all devices as "0000:0000 USB Raw Device Access"

But lsusb gives correctly:

Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
Bus 005 Device 002: ID 1546:01a5 U-Blox AG 
Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
Bus 006 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
Bus 007 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
Bus 008 Device 001: ID 0000:0000  
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000 

And even virsh reports the device:

virsh # nodedev-list --cap usb

usb_device_0_0_0000_00_1a_0_if0
