    Well since you don't want to pull it, I can just trash this tree, it
    only contains the Lineo code.

    It's code to be a USB client device, not a USB host device, which is
    what we currently have. It is used in embedded devices that run Linux,
    like the new Sharp device (can't remember the name right now...)

    Sorry. I spend most of my time on this code just cleaning the format
    and removing build errors, instead of looking at the content :(

    I'll work on fixing all of the crap before submitting it again.
