is there any effort know that uses libusb as backend for winusb calls. This
could server two purposes:
- Compile winusb code on non-win32 platforms
- Run win32 code using winusb on Wine with a winusb->libusb translation layer.

Not that I know of.
Furthermore, since there is no 1:1 mapping of Linux's libusb
capabilities onto Windows/WinUSB capabilities, and our current resources
too limited to start looking into adding a feature of such magnitude,
regardless of actual feasibility, it's unlikely anyone will take on that
challenge anytime soon.
Personally, I think a much more fruitful endeavour would be to help make
the ReactOS USB stack virtualizable on Linux, as it would probably make
more sense to have a "Wine/WinUSB -> ReactOS USB virtual layer -> Linux
USB" over a "Wine/WinUSB -> custom WinUSB libusb reverse layer -> libusb
-> Linux USB", even more so as ReactOS have launched Thorium , which
already goes in the direction of trying to virtualize ReactOS anyway.
