NAME
       check_driver - Linux 2.6(.16+) userspace device rebinding helper.


SYNOPSIS
       check_driver driver devpath bustype


DESCRIPTION
       This is a RUN script that may be invoked from a udev rule to ensure the
       correct driver is bound to a particular device, in situations  where  a
       basic  driver may bind to it first but a more specialised one is avail-
       able.


EXAMPLE
       For the wacom device, a rule like this is used:

       KERNEL=="event[0-9]*",     SYSFS{idVendor}=="056a",      ACTION=="add",
       RUN+="/lib/udev/check_driver wacom $devpath $env{ID_BUS}"
