/dev/bus/usb/*/* lists all the usb devices connected on Alpine Linux. For example a phone could be /dev/bus/usb/001/009. When that phone is reconnected it will be /dev/bus/usb/001/010, i.e. it increments.

My question is what happens after 1001 connections?

/dev/bus/usb/001/009
                 010
                 ...
                 100
                 ...
                 500
                 ...
                 999
                 ???

Would the ??? go to 1000? Would it create a new folder say 003 under /dev/bus/usb/?

This is for manipulating the output of usb-devices and lsusb. Getting the Vendor and ProdID is not unique in my case.

I'd rather not plug in/out a usb cable 1000 times, thanks!
