I don't claim to be an expert on this, but I notice on the page:
That libusb:004:003 notation is from what the author calls "older hotplug based setup" (" aaa and bbb come from the devicename libusb:aaa:bbb").

Perhaps someone that knows the hotplug system can tells if a kernel update can cause some incompatibility.
