pvusb is a work in progress under GPLPV, and I haven't worked on it in a
while as I stopped using the old 2.6.18 kernel and pvusb wasn't
supported under pvops kernels for a long time.

What is a "My Book 1130" device? If it is purely storage then it might
work, but otherwise I think there are too many unsupported functions and
it is unlikely to work. Can you send me a lsusb -v for the device? I can
probably tell you one way or the other if I can see what interfaces it

If someone wanted to sponsor pvusb development under GPLPV then it might
get fixed sooner, but otherwise it's not near the top of my list of
projects at the moment. Sorry.

Can anyone comment on how well pvusb is supported under the latest xen
and pvops kernels?
