Hmm, a long
grep 'detecting usb devices' /dev/brain 
gives the following:

ugly method: add a global variable to the hso driver saying if it is
used and checking it from a rfkill driver.

better method: bus_register_notifier()
check for BUS_NOTIFY_BOUND_DRIVER and then for the name of the driver
bound. That looks like a clean way, a separate module and no need
to mess around at multiple places in the kernel.

I think for the GPS module, the mechanism has to be a bit different.
The ugly method will be the same, but I do not know the better method
