You are correct. The USB FET tool is supported by the Windows version of
gdb-proxy, but not by the Linux version. I really need to get this
sorted out, as the new 2xx devices with the Spy-Bi-Wire can only be
debugged using the USB FET tool. If I don't get a USB driver sorted out
for Linux, we son't be able to support these new devices under Linux.
I don't think providing support is a big job, since a Linux driver
exists for the TUSB3410 USB device in the FET tool. It needs to be
adapted, though, and I just haven't found time to do it.
The parallel port FET tools works OK under Linux.
