while thinking the whole time that in hvm domUs only a pointer device
can be used as usb device, I found the section about usb stuff in the
xen manual when looking at it again.


"USB physical devices"  sounds like I could get a random usb device in
the hvm domU, right?

The fact that hvm is here still mentioned as VT can be a sign that
this information is quite old, and outdated, but it might be worth a

On the other hand, before wasting hours of precious time: did anyone
try to forward single usb ports with this configuration in recent Xen
versions, and were there successes to use it for anything else but a
mouse, for example for a usb stick or something like that?
