The thing is, this behaviour (needing to reboot for USB) is going to go
away once Rockbox has its own USB mode. Meanwhile, the hold switch
remains the best choice for settings reset on the players where it is
used often because of how little room there is for accidents, it's quite
easy for a player to get bumped on in a pocket and have multiple buttons
being held down.

In all honesty, there's no need to have Hold enabled while you're
plugging into a computer anyway. Pressing keys while USB is connected
won't do anything anyway.
