As far as I can see from the QEMU documentation, we can push through a
USB  device  (telephone,  etc), but not the USB hub itself. This means
that  I would have to have a process running in Dom0 monitoring device
insertion  and  hot-configuring  QEMU.  Not  sure  if  QEMU allows hot

I'll  pull  down  the  old GPLPV drivers and see what I can get out of
there.  Supposedly  splice  protocol allows USB forwarding, has anyone
tried it?
