These files can be read as binary data. The binary data consists
of first the device descriptor, then the descriptors for each
-configuration of the device. Multi-byte fields in the device and
-configuration descriptors, but not other descriptors, are converted

+configuration of the device. Multi-byte fields in the device descriptor
+are converted to host endianness by the kernel. The configuration
+descriptors are in bus endian format! The configuration descriptor

+descriptor data than indicated by wTotalLength there will be a hole in

in text form by the /proc/bus/usb/devices file, described later.
These files may also be used to write user-level drivers for the USB
