[swift-users] IOKit and USB devices with swift 3

Hi swift community,
I am trying to access an USB device in a swift project, with quite limited knowledge of IOKit and not a log of experience using unsafe pointers with swift.
My goal is to create a class that will listen to connections and disconnections of a device matching a productID and vendorID.
What I have done up to now is extensively based on that documentation (not swift oriented) :
The result of my tests and trial can be found here : http://pastebin.com/rSqdFMwH <http://pastebin.com/rSqdFMwH>
(sorry for the pastebin link, but the code is almost 300 lines, which is quite a lot for a mail)
This code compiles on Xcode 8, and the callbacks on plugging and unplugging the device works fine.
But it systematically crashes with an EXC_BAD_ACCESS on the first use of the IOUSBDeviceInterface when a device is detected (on line 143, when trying to open the device).
I guess to have such an error, I must be messing badly with the UnsaveMutablePointer.
Would anyone master IOKit and swift enough to spot my mistake ?
You can test it by executing that code in a sample project :
try USBDevice(vendorId: 0x04d8, productId: 0xf372)
where vendorId and productId should match one of your connected devices.
Also, there are very few exemples of swift code dealing with IOKit and USB, I would be glad to contribute by publishing that code if I can have it working !
Thanks for your help !
