 I was wondering if there are any plans to address USB passthrough with Xen 3. 
I have
virtualized Windows servers running under Xen on IBM BladeCenter, and need to 
assign USB
ports to different Windows instances. The ports have copy protection dongles 
installed so that
a specific package can be run on each instance of Windows. We have 2 dongles 
and need to
assign one to one instance of Windows, and the other to another instance.
Any ideas on how I can do this?

It is documented in the Xen Manual for HVM, but doesn't work like
documented, at least for me.
I talked about that on -devel and gonna report a bug today.
