It's a block device driver for USB storage which I wrote recently.
Arjan enabled it in Rawhide, obviously to get reports such as yours.

For some reason hald sometimes loses its mind when it sees ub.
I have no idea what is happening. I run FC2 with updates, everything
seems operating normally when I debug ub. I did not see us shipping
device nodes for ub, so if hald manages to open ub, it must be creating
device nodes on the fly, by reading /proc/devices or /proc/partitions.
Userland is some crazy stuff these days...
