Thanks!

Should you mention something about permanent quirks in /boot/loader.conf via usb_quirk.ko ?

I thought about it. I didn't want to put it in this manual page as it is usbconfig(8) specific. I thought that the user is going to explore USB, ifconfig and rc manual pages in order to make the configuration permanent.

It would be nice to suggest explicitly where to look for things required for a persistent configuration.
