Why is this a different interface than the existing ones we have today
(i.e. usbip?)  Where is it documented?  Do the Xen developers /

The interface definition is living in the Xen git repository for several
years now:

git://xenbits.xen.org/xen.git -> xen/include/public/io/usbif.h

It is used e.g. in SUSE's xen kernel since 2.6.18.

The differences between the Xen version and the one I've posted here are
only style and name space related.

maintainers agree with this interface and code?  I need their sign-off
before I can accept such a thing.


David, Konrad, Boris, could one of you please comment on the patches?
