SubjectUSB-Storage drivers
Hi Matthew, David, Linus,

any particular reason why the support for special dongles in the usb-storage
driver can not be selected during kernel configuration? (See attached patch).

I can only tell about the Freecom support in the usb-storage driver: It
works flawlessly for me driving some OnStream USB30 tape drive (with the
osst driver). So, I think it should be offered to people who want to try.

Of course, it's up to you. Maybe you want to put some ifdef CONFIG_EXPERIMENTAL
around it or a little help text. But I'd definitely appreciate the
possibility to compile the drivers without patching the Config file.
