Hello Mr. Golz,
There has only been minor interest in using USB from within UML and the host
architecture changed ~2.4.19/2.5.59 breaking the usb-hcd.
Enthusiasm for fixing it has been lacking I only seem to get one or two
emails each year about USB on UML.
Encouragement is welcome, it has been a lack of interest that has allowed it
to fall to bit rot.
It was working fairly well before the architecture change and could be made
to work again without very much more work.
I have a thought that USB/IP http://usbip.naist.jp/ may provide a more
active approach with its virtual host controller over IP as a example of a
current virtual host controller, or even direct use over UMLs networking.
Sorry for the extra long delay in replying, your message arrived while I was
out of town for two weeks and now my cat is sick...
