[MM] "usb" subsystem renamed to "usbmisc" in 3.6


I noticed that there had been significant progress in the "qmi-support"
branch, so I thought I might give it a try.  But it failed to find any
QMI devices at all due to the recent (well, ehhm, future) renaming of
"usb" to "usbmisc".  I really don't know if this is such a good idea
this late in the game, but we probably must live with it given the
reason behind the change:

    USB: rename the usb misc class from "usb" to "usbmisc"
    This class was not named properly years ago, and it turns out that tools
    like udev can't properly see the devices in this class after booting due
    to the fact that there is a bus with the same name in the system.
    Changing this to "usbmisc" fixes this problem, and it solves the problem
    for the future when we want to unify classes and busses.

I hacked myself a version of ModemManager with "usb" replaced by
"usbmisc", but I have no idea how to fix this properly so I won't
attempt to provide any patch.  Just though you might want to be aware of
