usb_register_dev - register a USB device, and ask for a minor number
int usb_register_dev (struct usb_interface * intf,
struct usb_class_driver * class_driver);
intf pointer to the usb_interface that is being registered
pointer to the usb_class_driver for this device
This should be called by all USB drivers that use the USB major number.
If CONFIG_USB_DYNAMIC_MINORS is enabled, the minor number will be
dynamically allocated out of the list of available ones. If it is not
enabled, the minor number will be based on the next available free
minor, starting at the class_driver->minor_base.
This function also creates a usb class device in the sysfs tree.
usb_deregister_dev must be called when the driver is done with the
minor numbers given out by this function.
Returns -EINVAL if something bad happens with trying to register a
device, and 0 on success.
