Description

Extend the existing SysInfo::getUsbVendorIdProductIdSerialNumber to generate a unique serial. Serial should be based on the device descriptor data (see: http://libusb.sourceforge.net/api-1.0/structlibusb__device__descriptor.html). Due to the fact that the SerialNumber field is not set on every device, a hash over all descriptor fields looks more promising as unique code/id.

All descriptor fields other than the serial number are the same for two sticks of the same series.

So we will need a random generated serial number in a config file on the device as fallback.
