There was mostly an objection to the implementation of that patch. The
new patch follows the advice given by the linux-usb list members at that
time.

There is increasing interest from various kernel devs (including
maintainers and above) to be able to use clang to compile the Linux
kernel. The removal of the use of VLAIS in the kernel is a step in
allowing that to happen.

Andrzej Pietrasiewicz attended the LLVM microconference at Plumbers last
week and accepted the USB gadget patch.

Thanks,

Behan
