Why are you changing the varible name? That seems unnecessary.

Leaving the variable name alone keeps this patch much smaller.

You are doing different things in this patch, one is converting the
function style and one is updating the text. How about doing just the
function name stuff first, all in one patch, and then the updates, as
that would make it much easier to read.

Also, any reason you aren't cc:ing the USB maintainer on these changes? :)
