In contrast to pci-devices you now have an additional stage which is the 
Look at the interrupts which usb-port isn't sharing its interrupt with other 
devices. Then use lsusb to find out where you have to plug the device to use 
that usb-port (Most times one port has two or more plugs connected to it).
Then you can try to use the rtirq-script to raise the priority of that 

For usb (and firewire) it is usually better to use -n3 -p... which has 
something to do with the way their protocols work.
