USB Interface Association Descriptor Support

Solaris Express Developer Edition 5/07: A USB device node type, IA node, is created for Interface Association Descriptor (IAD) support. This feature means that a driver might support multiple interfaces for the same device, such as the video and audio interfaces of a webcam. If no driver is found for an IA node, a nexus driver, usb_ia, is bound to the IA node to create the interface nodes. For more information, see usb_ia(7D).
