HP LaserJet P1005 under 8.0-RC2

Hello,

I had my HP P1005 printer working just fine under 7.2-RELEASE, but I just updated to 8.0-RC2 and the driver doesn't seem to like the new USB stack.

I was using the foo2xqx driver -- with this driver, the firmware needs to be sent to the printer each time it is turned on, like this: % cat sihpP1005.dl > /dev/ugen0.0.

Now, according to dmesg, the printer is now known as device /dev/ugen2.2, but I can't send the firmware to it (and I can't send the firmware to any other ugen* device either):
Code:
cat sihpP1005.dl > /dev/ugen2.2 
cat: stdout: Input/output error
(Trying the same as root or with sudo doesn't make any difference.)

My /etc/devfs.rules:
Code:
add path 'da*' mode 0660 group operator
add path 'usb' mode 0777
add path 'usb/*' mode 0666
add path 'usbctl' mode 0666
add path 'ugen*' mode 0777
% ls -lh /dev/ugen* with the printer connected and turned on:
Code:
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  wheel     9B Oct 31 17:18 /dev/ugen0.1 -> usb/0.1.0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  wheel     9B Oct 31 17:18 /dev/ugen1.1 -> usb/1.1.0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  wheel     9B Oct 31 17:18 /dev/ugen2.1 -> usb/2.1.0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  wheel     9B Oct 31 20:31 /dev/ugen2.2 -> usb/2.2.0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  wheel     9B Oct 31 17:18 /dev/ugen3.1 -> usb/3.1.0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  wheel     9B Oct 31 17:18 /dev/ugen4.1 -> usb/4.1.0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  wheel     9B Oct 31 17:18 /dev/ugen5.1 -> usb/5.1.0
lrwxrwxrwx  1 root  wheel     9B Oct 31 17:18 /dev/ugen6.1 -> usb/6.1.0
Googling around for possible solutions didn't turn up anything successful for me. So, any hints?

You should ask on the freebsd-usb mailing list.
Also, turn on debuging informations on ugen:
[cmd=]sysctl hw.usb.ugen.debug=1[/cmd]

I asked on the mailing list and it was actually rather simple: just cat the firmware into /dev/usb/2.2.1 (in my particular case, that is).
