That is something I haven't figured out. So the plan was to expose each
gadget as an individual port with its own descriptors. The device
number is indeed a problem that can be hardly solved. The Host sets the
address of the device it talks to and the hub routes it properly. This
is someting we can't emulate.
Hmm. So it boils down to an efficient way of providing multiple
interface descriptors without adding a lot of code each time?
