Document fallback for empty USB idProduct

The Discover your hardware docs say that the canonical model name of USB devices is determined by the "idProduct" field of lsusb's output. For at least one USB device (17e9:02ee DisplayLink VGA Display Adapter), that field is the empty string (tested on PureOS Byzantium), which presumably makes such advice suboptimal. lsusb seems to use the "iProduct" field as a fallback when displaying the device name in such cases. Is that fallback policy acceptable for h-node? (I'm happy to edit the wiki accordingly, but wanted to ask for feedback here before I make such a change unilaterally.)
