The attached patch for hd44780-lcd2usb changes the device scanning mechanism
of the lcd2usb driver. The original version scans for all attached lcd2usb
devices and uses the last one found. This has the problem, that defining two
lines "Driver=hd4478" in the config file, opens the last display twice.

The patched version keeps track of the used devices and uses the first unused
one. This makes it possible to use multiple lcd2usb devices on one machine
clone the output to all of them (e.g. for different rooms playing music using
the same MythTV box).

Thanks for making LCDproc!
