You can match name, phys, bustype, vendor, product and version.  Thus a
string in phys should work.  "xenbus/" + nodename maybe?

Nevertheless I think some vendor and product id would be nice, usb hid
devices are usually identified using these two, so having something
useful filled in makes things easier ...
