Argh rather. The linux-usb bureaucracy deserves stronger expressions. :-P

With Felipe disappearing again, not only 8 MUSB fixes posted by me
prior to 2.6.28 hadn't gotten into stable kernel, now there's little
chance they can get into -rc1 and so no chance for my several (yet
unposted) cleanup/reorg patches to get there as well... sigh... :-(

You forgot to mention my several prior mails -- succeffully ignored
as well, unless they all managed to fall thru the cracks somehow...
