If I get him right, this is exactly what Matthieu didn't like about
usbatm2.  Rather he suggested to do like the ATM layer, which takes the
struct atmdev_ops at device create time, not at driver register time.

At least this is how I understood him and implemented in usb_atm
committed a couple of hours ago.  And FWIW I do believe it to be
somewhat more convenient from the subdriver writer POV.
