[Bug 37590] "device" field of uevents still says "/proc/bus/usb" (should say "/dev/bus/usb")

Public bug reported:

Affects: linux-source-2.6.15 (Ubuntu)
       Severity: Normal
       Priority: (none set)
         Status: Unconfirmed

If I run "udevmonitor --env" and plug something into one of my usb
ports, any uevents that contain the "device" field say something like:


But the /proc/bus/usb tree is no longer populated:

root at t21jt:/# ls -al /proc/bus/usb/001/002
ls: /proc/bus/usb/001/002: No such file or directory

Instead, these devices are now located under /dev/bus/usb:

root at t21jt:/# ls -al /dev/bus/usb/001/002
crw-rw-r-- 1 root root 189, 1 2006-04-01 14:50 /dev/bus/usb/001/002

BTW, please excuse the error if this is actually a problem with
udevmonitor - I assumed that it's a kernel problem because the error
occurs in both uevent AND udev entries (i.e. both before AND after udev
processing has occurred).

Hope this helps.
