I don't that is necessary any more, the information needed to build
external drivers is supposedly included in the binary package.

Yes, it is, but I think the only thing affected is the mount of
/proc/usb/, the kernel should see all the usb devices anyway. The name
of the internal filesystem for usb changed from usbdevfs to usbfs in
recent kernels. You should be able to manually (be careful!) edit
/etc/rc.d/rc.sysinit to change usbdevfs to usbfs. But that would not
work with the older kernels, of course. I could release an updated
initscripts package but that is such a core package I hesitate to do
