NAME

usb_modeswitch_dispatcher – Linux wrapper for usb_modeswitch (not
intended for direct invocation)

SYNOPSIS

usb_modeswitch_dispatcher

DESCRIPTION

usb_modeswitch_dispatcher will do detailed device checking and will
subsequently use the Linux-independent usb_modeswitch binary together
with the selected device config file to switch the mode of certain USB
devices.

If no drivers are taking care of the device after the mode switch, the
dispatcher will try to load and bind the “option” serial driver to any
USB interfaces with class 0xff, in order to make the device useable in
case it is not recognized by that driver yet. This may or may not work.

This program is called by udev and is not supposed to be called
directly by the user.
