The problem is that Wine needs to use an entirely different approach than
ReactOS. We cannot rely on libusb, our configuration manager apis need to
call to the user-mode-pnp-manager (umpnpmgr.dll) via RPC. Umpnpmgr.dll
communicates with ntoskrnl via NtPlugPlayControl and NtGetPlugPlayEvent. As
a short-term sollution we can retrieve some information from the registry
instead of calling umpnpmgr.

Which setupapi functions are needed for this hack?
