I guess we need to produce some better text descriptions of each
device. 'lsusb' seems to be giving me better descriptions than
the ones virt-viewer does, so the info must be there somewhere.

Regardless, I have pushed these two patches


lsusb is getting its info from the usb.ids file, where as
spice-gtk is getting the info from the device itself using
the so called string descriptors. Unfortunately not all devices
bother with string descriptors, in which case spice-gtk says
just "USB Device". To remedy this I've just send 3 patches to
the spice-devel list to add support for parsing usb.ids,
and using the info from there if the device does not want to
tell us what it is.
